Being a parent at Bruern Abbey offers the chance to become a significant member of the school community and our formal dinners not only provide a good opportunity for parents to come and see their sons, they are also a real highlight of the Bruern week.

Tuesday evening formal dinners start at approximately 6.05 pm with a reception (and possible recital) in the Drawing Room; Thursday evenings start with Chapel at 5.25 pm and are followed by a reception in the Drawing Room. For dinner you will be seated with a member of staff and three or four boys, chosen by your son.

Wednesday evenings are also one of the regular times during the week that the boys have the time to forge strong friendships and spend free time together. Parents may take their son out for supper on a Wednesday evening, subject to prior arrangement via the school office.
