Academics are of paramount importance at Bruern. Due to boys' learning difficulties, they need to be taught in very specific ways to help them reach their full potential.
To achieve this Bruern is split into two halves, the Junior and Senior School:
- The Junior School is for boys aged 8 - 11 (National Curriculum Years 4 to 6).
- The Senior School is for boys aged 12 and 13 (National Curriculum Years 7 and 8).
