Bruern Abbey School Parent Reviews

Average Parent Rating



"> This is a superb school! The unique help it gives dyslexics is second to none, and its ethos and culture really are wonderful.
“Turned his life around, literally!”

"> Bruern is a wonderful and bespoke school. Tailored to each child with professionalism and creates amazing results. It’s a breath of fresh air in its unconventional approach and eccentric rituals. My child has hugely benefited and quite literally turned his life around.

Last update: 03 August 2022
The key differences between Bruern and other schools are essentially fourfold.
  • All boys come to Bruern with a laptop, for those who have difficulty in expressing themselves as swiftly or as coherently on paper as they do in speech, this is an absolute godsend
  • There is a clear focus on literacy and numeracy
  • All classes have small numbers – allowing boys more individual attention in class
  • As their needs are met in class, boys are rarely taken out for remedial support

There is no set catchment area as pupils are admitted from a wide variety of postcodes and, in the case of boarding schools, from outside the UK.
