Brambletye is an IAPS co-educational boarding/day school for pupils between the ages of 2 ½ and 13. Pupils are prepared for Common Entrance or Scholarship Examinations to a wide range of senior schools.
The school was founded in 1919 at Sidcup Place, Kent and moved to its present site, just off the A22, one mile south of East Grinstead, in 1933. In 1969 it was formed into a charitable educational trust with a Board of Governors, which includes parents and Old Boys, with a range of academic and educational experience.
The School facilities are centred on a large country house on the edge of the Ashdown Forest, in its own woodlands and extensive playing fields. The whole property covers 140 acres. The school has outstanding facilities including a newly refurbished Art Department and a brand new library. We also have a well-equipped ICT Room, a large Theatre and well-appointed music rooms. There is also a sports hall, tennis and netball courts, two squash courts, an indoor swimming pool and several playing fields including a new all-weather pitch.
We believe that a perfectly balanced combination of traditional values with modern sensibilities makes Brambletye a very special to be. It enables our pupils to thrive as they learn and play, our teachers to love their work as they encourage and support, and our parents to feel pride and peace of mind as they see their children flourish and explore their abilities.
This is an education which focuses on developing the whole person in a beautiful and historic setting. We have thought hard about how we prepare our children for a future which may look quite different from today’s world. We encourage and inspire our pupils to be emotionally intelligent and adaptable. We show them how to be the best people they can be, creatively, academically and physically. We give them the courage and belief in their abilities to become confident, happy individuals, well equipped for the next phase of their education and their lives.
