HEADMISTRESS’S WELCOME

Bronte is a school where each individual is encouraged and supported to achieve their best, where potential is identified and all in the school – both teachers and pupils – can be the most confident, successful version of themselves.

I am extremely proud of all that we offer at Bronte School as I believe we have both the academically rigorous systems and friendly personal approach that brings out the best in our pupils. As a small school community we nurture individuals through an integral and caring pastoral system to ensure that talents are fostered and achievements celebrated. We emphasise enquiry and rigour in all areas – humanities, languages, science, music, sport, performing and visual arts – as well as the core of mathematics and English.

As a mother to three children I have witnessed first-hand how their early experiences shaped their future and this informs my passion for early education. Whether it be social or academic development, we have a responsibility to build strong foundations. Since arriving at Bronte in 2010 I have seen children arriving at age 3 or 4 who may at first be nervous or shy, leave as confident articulate and successful young people at age 11. The vast majority of Bronte pupils gain their first choice senior school, and year on year 85% of them, or more, are successful at 11+ selection tests.

The best way to find out about Bronte School is to visit, so I warmly invite you to contact the school so that you can come and meet us; in order that we can discuss how Bronte may be a part of your family’s educational future.
