Bramdean is an interdenominational school for boys and girls. Pupils progress through the senior
according to ability rather than age and class sizes are kept small in order to allow each pupil to receive
exceptionally high level of individual attention.
The senior school (years 9, 10 and 11) follows a full curriculum in preparation for their GCSE courses. Pupils
in the lower and middle sixth (years 10 and 11) have the opportunity to study as many subjects as possible
through GCSE and A-level. However, in order to assist pupils, a prescribed range of subjects are decided on
by close consultation with principals and subject staff. In addition to the compulsory core subjects of English
language and literature, and mathematics, at least one science (biology, chemistry or physics), one modern
foreign language (French, German or Spanish), religious education and information technology, are taken by
all pupils. All pupils take part in various codes of sport during the week.
