The scale of Bruern Senior School, with its potential maximum of 120 pupils, was deliberately chosen to allow every staff member to know each boy well. This in depth knowledge of each boy’s character is a prerequisite for fully understanding the needs of the boys and therefore how we help them reach their potential.
Bruern has always provided exceptional pastoral care. Daily pastoral meetings involving all staff allow us to share successes both big and small as well as track and resolve major and minor pastoral concerns. Furthermore, the teaching and boarding staff are ably assisted by a Bruern network of professionals including cognitive behavioural therapists, educational psychologists, school counsellors, bereavement counsellors and psychiatrists.
