School Life

The curriculum at Brackenfield is broad and balanced. It is delivered by our professional staff in well-equipped classrooms.

We deliver the full range of National Curriculum subjects in a structured and supportive environment. We have high expectations for our pupils and prepare them for their next schools through stimulating classwork, practise papers and a range of activities that increase independence and leadership.

The academic curriculum is divided into three main levels:

Early Years
Age 2-5

Infants
Age 5-7

Juniors
Age 7-11

Each child enjoys lessons in Maths, English, Science and the humanities as well as opportunities for French, Music, Drama, PSHCE, Art, Design Technology and Sport within the normal teaching timetable.

“As an Independent School with no attachment to a specific Senior School, we can help parents select the most appropriate school for their child’s continued education.”

Our well-motivated pupils consistently achieve standards beyond national norms. High levels of application and good behaviour, both inside and outside the classroom, are also factors which contribute to the academic success of children at Brackenfield.

Progress is carefully monitored, and we take pride in assisting both less able and gifted pupils to progress to the best of their ability.
