Welcome to Branwood Preparatory School

Welcome to Branwood Preparatory School, where we offer superior co-educational schooling for children aged three to eleven.

As Headmaster of Branwood Preparatory School, I am delighted to provide you with an insight into the fantastic activities and opportunities offered at the School.

Whether this is your first experience of the School or if you have visited before, our independent ethos is clear to see from our wonderful pupils and staff.

Whilst based on the traditional values of hard work, academic excellence, extra-curricular music and sport, courtesy, kindness and respect, the school is also forward looking, enabling all our pupils to achieve their true potential.

The following pages will give you a flavour of what to expect at the School, including the extensive range of opportunities available for pupils both inside and outside of the classroom. Our examination results to local Independent and Trafford grammar schools speak for themselves, however, nothing can match the experience of actually visiting, seeing and feeling for yourself the friendly atmosphere and enthusiasm for learning that I believe pervades from the moment your child joins us.

I would be delighted to show you round and provide an opportunity for you to meet my colleagues and our pupils.
