Deputy Principal Academies (Bicton College)

I am writing to thank you for welcoming me on my visit to Brymore. I was impressed by the welcome I received from staff and students alike. I was struck by the students passion for their school and their sense of belonging and pride in what they do. They are certainly being well prepared not only for industry, but for life in general.

Comment from a supply teacher (2012)

All boys were on their best behaviour today and fell free to pass on that they engaged with their cover work superbly. Support staff were well respected- that’s welcome! The atmosphere around the place was superb – orderly and purposeful. politeness seemed to abound – the Brymore Boy is not an imagination – well done everyone. Staff were helpful all along – thank you.
