ESF Bradbury School offers a safe, caring and fun environment in which all students thrive and are the best that they can be. The calibre of our staff and the positive, encouraging approach in our classrooms, provides children with an all-round education of the very highest quality, achieving outstanding results. With emphasis on student agency, we encourage our children to become independent thinkers who care about the world around them – through an active sustainability approach – and develop the skills required to become lifelong learners and leaders. We place a high importance on partnership with parents and see this as a cornerstone of how we operate on a daily basis.
Our Parent Teacher Association (PTA) is active and hardworking, contributing much to the life of our school. We are governed by a knowledgeable and highly supportive School Council. Bradbury School is an International Baccalaureate (IB) World School.
We use the Primary Years Programme (PYP) as the basis of our instruction and to underpin our beliefs as expressed in our school vision – Inspiring minds . Nurturing hearts . Enriching tomorrow.
At the same time, we place a high value on our students becoming emotionally literate in a 21st century learning environment, embracing an extended concept of the areas that new technologies offer us.
