About Bradfield College

Bradfield College is a British co-educational independent school for day and boarding pupils, located in the small village of Bradfield in the English county of Berkshire. The school is a member of the Rugby Group, which also includes Rugby, Harrow, Shrewsbury, Wellington College and Charterhouse.

The college was founded in 1850 by Thomas Stevens, Rector and Lord of the Manor of Bradfield.  According to the Good Schools Guide, “Thoroughly unpretentious yet with lots to boast about, Bradfield is a heavenly place to learn and to grow. 

The school motto is the Latin; Benedictus es, O Domine. Doce me Statuta Tua, which means “You are blessed, Lord. Teach me your Laws”.

Bradfield is renowned for its Greek plays and outdoor amphitheatre. The amphitheatre was based on that at Epidaurus and built in a disused chalk pit. It opened in 1890 with a performance of Antigone

In September 2010 the Blackburn Science Centre was opened. The building includes green elements such as a bio-mass boiler, green roof and solar panels.

Since September 2012 Bradfield has offered the International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme (IBDP) alongside the traditional A Level pathway.

In Summer 2015 Bradfield received an outstanding inspection report from the Independent Schools Inspectorate.

The oldest building is College gateway, which incorporates part of a barn of 1382. The wrought iron was made by the village blacksmith.

Each August, the college serves as the ‘base camp’ for the Bradfield Ringing Course, which aims to improve the standard of change-ringing in the United Kingdom.
