Bradfield School is a learning community. We aim to enable every individual to find meaning in their life, to pursue happiness and to help others do the same. Academic success for students of all abilities is a vital part of this; we recognise that academic success opens doors in the future, provides opportunities and can lead to increased happiness. Furthermore, we recognise and value all achievement. Above all, we want every member of the Bradfield School learning community to feel happy, safe and valued as an individual as well as to be challenged and supported to fulfil their potential.

Everybody at Bradfield School has the responsibility to respect themselves and others, the school building and environment.
