Bramfield House School stands in magnificent grounds and gives pupils extraordinary educational opportunities through its innovative, successful teaching approach inside and outside the classroom.
The rural location, just off the main A12 in Suffolk, attracts interest for places across East Anglia to achieve happiness and success for even the most reluctant learners and vulnerable pupils.
The boys are taught in small, informal and relaxed classes, with clear structures in place. They forge strong working relationships with teachers and staff, who encourage their self-confidence and self-esteem through stimulating and realistic targets. Previous failure is replaced with a positive pattern of success and quantifiable educational achievements.
As well as practical and creative lessons on-site, including sports pitches and an RHS accredited horticulture department, Bramfield House offers the boys a huge variety of opportunities for education outside the classroom, including sailing qualifications on the Norfolk Broads, study along the East Anglian coastline, and numerous field trips.
Securing a weekly boarding place at Bramfield House will ensure that progress can be accelerated with a 24-hour, wraparound curriculum. The comfortable boarding facilities are located in the main house until the boys reach Years 10 and 11, when the emphasis develops towards semi-independent living, and preparation for life at college, an apprenticeship, university or work. As well as academic and educational progress, Bramfield House School develops self-esteem and self-confidence to ensure its pupils can go on to lead meaningful and successful adult lives.
From September 2019, the school has been advised by the placing Local Authority that any absence for the purpose of a holiday will be UNAUTHORISED.
"Daniel’s attitude and behaviour has improved and calmed since his enrolment at Bramfield House School, he still does have the occasional outburst, but he is able to be calmer and think first. Family life has become more enjoyable, the weekends fly by when he is at home." Daniel's Mum
"I would just like to say a special thank you for being there for Harvey even when times were extremely hard. You never gave up and stood by him as you know the real Harvey...I am very grateful that you've helped get him back to the young man he is turning into now." Parent
Thankfully we are moving ever closer to returning to some sort of recognizable schooling with all of our pupils now having received an offer for re-attending school on a part week basis….
