Breaside Preparatory School, located in Bromley, Kent, prepares pupils from 2 1/2 to 11 years for both Grammar and Independent Senior Schools in a caring and nurturing environment.
Breaside work closely with NACE (National Association for Able Children in Education) which nationally recognises and celebrates those schools which provide the very highest level of challenge for its pupils. NACE helps teachers provide excellent teaching and learning for able, gifted and talented pupils. As of June 2018, NACE has named Breaside the first school in Bromley to be accredited with the NACE Challenge Award meaning that we are now placed in a select group of just 1.6% of schools across the UK who have achieved this prestigious Challenge Award.
We are also pleased to share with you that we have been placed 11th in the Sunday Times Top 100 Independent Schools list 2019 - an absolutely fantastic achievement of which we are incredibly proud!
"It is wonderful to be recognised for all of the hard work that the staff and children put into Breaside to make it the very special place that it is." Mrs Karen Nicholson, Executive Principal.
Once again, SATs and 11+ entry results for 2018 were outstanding, with 100% of Year 6 pupils gaining their first choice at Senior School.
Parents are given guidance on the schools that we recommend for their children throughout their time at Breaside and we pride ourselves on getting the children into the right school for them as individuals.
Should I choose Breaside Preparatory School for my child?
Do they really offer more than a local primary school? The answer to both of these questions is a resounding 'Yes'.
As their name suggests, the role of preparatory schools is to prepare your child for their entrance into senior education, so don't be surprised to see a plethora of subjects on the curriculum. Your child will experience a well rounded education albeit in a nurturing environment. Classes are significantly smaller, allowing all pupils to progress. At the same time, this allows all staff to know their pupils and therefore offer a bespoke curriculum. Preparatory schools provide a wealth of opportunity for your child both academically and pastorally. Self confidence is encouraged and children are constantly motivated to enjoy and embrace all the opportunities that arise within this positive learning environment.
If the above isn't enough to tempt you, consider the other aspects of a stimulating, all-round education. Your child will have the opportunity to experience a wide range of music, playing in an orchestra or participating in the choir. Peripatetic teachers within a preparatory school can introduce your child to a wealth of instruments, regardless of ability. Drama is also extensive with children as young as 3 taking part in plays. Within the encouraging atmosphere of a preparatory school, this can only help to aid your child's confidence. Let's not forget the range of sporting events that your child can take part in. Children in a preparatory school experience a range of sports, including rugby, hockey, swimming and cricket.
Should you choose a preparatory school for your child? Well, if you want to give them the best possible start in life, then the answer has to be yes. The investment will pay off as you see your child blossom into a well rounded, self confident, individual, ready to face the world!
