Our children are happy, inquisitive and energetic – they enjoy being children in their educational environment. They learn to be part of their community, to live and work together, to share the traditional values of courtesy and good manners, to respect others, to have confidence, to think for themselves and to stand up for what they believe to be right. As a preparatory school we prepare our children for their lives ahead. The children learn to grasp every opportunity offered to them and they leave Branwood justifiably proud of their school and their achievements.
The heart of the school lies in academic excellence but as part of the educational process and the development of the ‘whole child’ we also provide a wide range of extra-curricular activities which are taught or coached by specialist, qualified staff, many of whom have represented their chosen activity at a national level.
Religious knowledge is taught within the school to provide pupils with an understanding of all faiths and worldviews. In keeping with the school’s teachings on social, moral, spiritual and cultural life, assemblies are broadly secular in nature but we do take advantage of important festivals and celebrations to help foster understanding of our rich and diverse community.
School opens at 8.00am when children are supervised until registration at 8.35am. Following school we have extra curricular activities, as well as out of hours care with the facility to complete homework, from 3.00-5.45pm. We also offer a variety of activities during the school holidays.
