About Bredon School
Bredon School is an independent dyslexia-friendly boarding and day school for children aged 7-18 situated in the beautiful Gloucestershire countryside.
Bredon's inspiring location, wide-ranging curriculum and vast outdoor environment enables all pupils to find an area in which to shine; whether that is on the school farm, within the forest school, out on the sports fields, taking part in outdoor education and adventure activities, or joining its thriving Combined Cadet Force. The opportunities are endless.
Pupils join Bredon from the local area, the UK and the wider world, and come together to form a vibrant community of learners who are socially and morally responsible and who support one another on their journey towards becoming happy, healthy, confident and capable young people.
The School is recognised by a specialist and professional association for its work teaching dyslexic pupils; it is accredited by the Council for the Registration of Schools Teaching Dyslexic Pupils (CReSTeD) and holds DSP - Dyslexia Specialist Provision - thanks to its specialist learning support centre.
In Department for Education figures, published on 24 January 2019, Bredon was ranked number one out of 4434 schools and colleges in England for 'value added' progress for students aged 16-18 years.
The School currently has 216 pupils and since 2014, has been under the ownership of Cavendish Education Ltd.

Values and vision
Bredon School provides an education that caters for all types of learners and treats and values them as individuals. Everyone in the Bredon community is expected to participate fully in the academic and extra-curricular life of the school, in order to develop as well-rounded, tolerant and responsible individuals.
“The pupils’ personal development is excellent throughout all sections of the school. Their spiritual development is strong and they have a well-developed awareness of moral issues. Their social development is excellent and, as they progress through the school, they develop a thorough awareness of cultural issues. They have a clear sense of right and wrong and, at all ages, including the youngest they demonstrate a high level of mutual respect and support for each other and for all members of the school community.”
