Bradfield College is a coeducational independent school located in the small village of Bradfield in the English county of Berkshire. Founded in 1850 by Thomas Stevens, and set in its own village amidst unspoilt Berkshire countryside, Bradfield College enjoys a well-established reputation for being one of the country’s leading co-educational, independent schools through its provision of academic excellence and a well-rounded education.
The college boasts some of the very best facilities in the UK. There is a superb 1300m² sports centre incorporating a 25 metre swimming pool, 8 multi-usage sports courts and a fully equipped gym. You'll also have use of floodlit all-weather tennis courts, an indoor tennis centre, squash courts, extensive games fields and a rifle range.
Students prepare for the Trinity examination at grade 1-9 (beginner to upper intermediate). These grades are aligned to levels pre A1-C1 of the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages. The exam fee is £45 and is in addition to course fee.
Students have the opportunity to mix and make friends with English boys and girls of a similar age. There’ll be one School Friend in each class at these centres, assisting students in the learning process. They’ll have lunch with the students, join in the afternoon activities on campus and go on half-day excursions during the week. It’s an ideal way for students to speak English naturally with English teenagers throughout the day.
A feature that sets Bradfield apart is that all rooms, whether single, twin or 3-4 bedded, have en suite bathrooms. Award-winning catering is self-service in the central dining hall. Both lunch and dinner are three-course. English breakfast, lunch and evening meals are provided.
