Nestled in beautiful parkland and housed in a late nineteeth century manor house, Bruern Abbey School is an independent day and boarding school for boys aged 8-13 with dyslexia or other specific learning difficulties. It is the only preparatory school in the country to have as its main purpose the preparation of boys with learning difficulties for Common Entrance and other entrance examinations to mainstream independent senior schools.

Bruern Abbey School places great emphasis on experiencing all that prep school life has to offer; specialist teaching should not mean missing out on all the fun. At Bruern we make every effort to give the boys an action-packed time – be it musical, theatrical, cultural or sporting.

Bruern Abbey School has a few fundamental differences, which allow boys to succeed at Common Entrance and be ready for life beyond.
