What the school says...

Bradfield College offers an all-round education based on an extremely high standard of pastoral care; an excellent academic education and the broader vision of holistic development created by the well-rounded co-curricular activities, superb facilities and a young and dynamic staff. Boarding houses offer single and double bedsits (if at all possible) in the Sixth Form. A wide selection of subjects is offered at GCSE, and Sixth Formers can study either A-Levels or the IB Diploma Programme. All pupils in the large Sixth Form go onto University.

The College is set in its own medieval village in 250 acres of beautiful Berkshire countryside, situated close to Junction 12 on the M4 and within easy reach of Reading Station and Heathrow Airport.
