INSIDE SCOOP Bradfield ollege Bradfield, Berkshire, RG7 6AU Admissions: 011896 44516 • Weekly/Full 13-18 The Inside Scoop from a current parent… I chose Bradfield as I had heard what a kind and well balanced school it was. The facilities are out of this world and always being improved. Bradfield itself feels safe, secure and is idyllic in its setting. I am about to send my fourth child to Bradfield and despite the fact they are all very different personalities, Bradfield seems to find and encourage the very best out of everyone – no small feat. Bradfield children have a quiet confidence about them and their social skills are as strong as their friendships. They are interesting young people who are perceived as fun, decent, engaging youngsters who mix well with pupils from other schools. When children are happy they flourish and achieve academically. Bradfield children are just that. SE As parents, we love: The safe and kind environment. A wide range of skills offered from sport to drama and academics. Great achievements without being a hot house. Our children love: The many friendships they have made. A close working relationship with all tutors and house mistresses, masters and teaching staff. The extensive variety of activities that are on offer. HEADS UP “Bradfield offers an all-round education which is inclusive and diverse. There is one Bradfield but there are many Bradfieldians because the College is made up of young people whose individuality is nurtured and cherished.” Dr Christopher Stevens, Headmaster Open days: Every Saturday morning during term time by appointment. 10 Read the full review on ★ 2019

INSIDE SCOOP Brambletye School Lewes Rd, East Grinstead, West Sussex, RH19 3PD Admissions: 01342 321004 • SE Day/Flexi/Weekly/Full 2.5-13 The Inside Scoop from a current parent… We chose Brambletye over other great schools for it’s special blend of traditional and contemporary values. From support to teaching staff, there are no weak links. Everyone is passionate, professional and top of their game. They really care about the school and it’s reputation but most of all they care about your child. Will and Amelia Brooks have not only fitted into this very special blend of qualities but have elevated every element, providing a clear focus and ‘care’ that is unique. Our son has emerged as a polite, confident, challenged (at the right level), curious, kind and engaging lad, all qualities that Brambletye have enhanced. I wouldn’t be surprised if Brambletye was the best prep school in the country. Seriously. How could you beat it?! As parents, we love: The incredible buildings, location and grounds. The wonderfully supportive and nurturing team of teachers and support staff. The blend of traditional and contemporary values all brought together within a genuine sense of purpose and vision. Our children love: All the amazing friends I have. Everyone is so friendly and kind. The teachers are incredible! I also love all the things I get to do. HEADS UP “Brambletye’s school rules are very simple - Work Hard, Play Hard and Be Kind - these values apply to staff and pupils and underpin everything we do.” Will Brooks, Headmaster Open days: 31st May & 1st June. 2019 ★ Read the full review on 11
