Welcome to Bronte School

Bronte School is an independent preparatory school, for 4 to 11 year olds. Its setting is a fine, spacious building, with plenty of outdoor garden and play areas, in the centre of Gravesend, 3 or 4 minutes from the station. Founded in 1905, Bronte has a long tradition as a family school, where a child’s confidence grows, amidst bright, warm environment, in which support and affirmation run together with stretch and challenge.

In its ethos, the school looks to combine traditional values with a lively academic life and a broad, exciting curriculum. Excellent teaching and strong background administration allow these elements to be in balance and mutually supportive.

There is one class per year group, each with maximum size of 20. The school is thus relatively small, something which helps its family feel. There is a strong staff team: teachers and teaching assistants lead the way educationally, and support staff provide the underpinning and the environment for learning and growth.

Bronte is conveniently located for any family living in Gravesend, Ebbsfleet, Dartford/Greenhithe, and the surrounding villages. The commuting links to central London are very fast, and the school fits well with different modern family lifestyles.
