Welcome to Bramdean School

A message from the Headmistress Diane Stoneman

William Cory, an Eton Master, wrote:

"a great school is not just knowledge that is acquired, not even the shadow of lost knowledge that later protects you from many illusions but most importantly the arts and habits that last for a lifetime"

It is our aim at Bramdean to continue to emulate this compelling ethos.  We strive to encourage pupils to be self-confident, inquiring, tolerant, positive and well-rounded characters; we look for pupils with independent minds, individuals who respect the differences of others.  By the time pupils leave the school, we want them to have that true sense of self-worth which will enable them to stand up for themselves and for a purpose greater than themselves, and,  in so doing, to be of value to society.
