Headteacher's Welcome

Bradon Forest School is set in the rural village of Purton, surrounded by stunning Wiltshire countryside. This gives us the perfect backdrop to focus on providing an excellent all-round education as well as nurturing students' individual talents and strengths.

We have been educating young people for over 50 years and are committed to developing highly successful, fully rounded individuals ready to take their place in the world. 2019 saw another set of fantastic examination results with 73% of students achieving a grade 4 or above in both Maths and English and over 45% of our students achieving at least one grade 7 or above. 

We continue to update and develop our site following the construction of our new state of the art sports hall in 2016, adding a new food and textiles block in the spring of 2018. Our mix of modern and traditional learning environments gives our school a unique, individual feel that is welcomed by students and parents alike.

At Bradon Forest School, we provide a friendly, caring, creative and purposeful environment in which your son or daughter can feel supported. They will be encouraged to take every opportunity given to them both academically and in extra-curricular activities. We strive to develop confident young adults who show both respect and resilience and who have high aspirations for their futures.

Mrs Dickson,  Headteacher
