Previous student (2014)

I am writing to thank you for my three years at Brymore, which I can truly say have changed my life forever. Brymore transformed me from someone who hated going to school to someone who looked forward to it and thrived from it. I achieved far higher grades than I could have ever expected, which for me was rounded off with a grade ‘C’ in Maths.
