Boarding Principles and Objectives

The boarding provision at Brymore defines the nature of the school and makes an exceptional contribution to the overall pastoral care and personal development of all our boys.

Statement of Principles and Practice

“To ensure that the students of Brymore achieve by providing an outstanding all-round experience, insisting upon high expectations, effective partnerships and creating a safe and supporting environment”

Our aims for the Boarding Community

We believe that boys should be exposed to a breadth of education that only a boarding environment can provide, with the values, self-confidence and personality gained in a caring family atmosphere. The pastoral team endeavour to create a nurturing and supportive environment that allows students to grow and develop emotionally, physically, morally, socially and educationally.
