A place to flourish

Welcome to Brentwood Senior School, one of the finest independent schools in the country. In an increasingly demanding and competitive world, Brentwood students shine out as enterprising people who are able to make the best of themselves and create opportunities for others.

We are a day and boarding school with a difference - our boys and girls are taught separately until the Sixth Form so we can tailor academic teaching more specifically. All 1,100 students have the benefit of mixing socially outside the classroom, enjoying state-of-the-art facilities set in the heart of Brentwood town in Essex, surrounded by 72 acres of green playing fields and gardens. Educational innovation across all disciplines is supported by nearly 500 years of history and tradition.

Brentwood has a justifiable reputation for developing flexible, creative, enterprising learners with a sound work ethic, who will be able to compete with the best of Asia, America and Europe in the 21st century. Our students understand that learning yields profound rewards for those who approach it with rigour and enthusiasm. We cultivate these qualities by teaching with genuine passion in a stimulating environment.

Our school motto, ‘Virtue, Learning, Manners’ was coined for the School in 1622 by John Donne, Dean of St. Paul’s Cathedral and one of England’s finest poets. These words are still our guiding principles today and are founded on Christian values that are inclusive and full of warmth. We are a friendly and down-to-earth community that enjoys its diversity.

This website shows you the huge breadth of opportunities that our students enjoy and the dynamism of school life across academic, arts, sports and community. You can also find out about school events, open days and admissions.

If you wish to download a prospectus, you can do so here or you can call 01277 243 243 and we will post one to you. The best way to find out about Brentwood Senior School, though, is to visit us. Please call to make arrangements - we would be delighted to see you.

The Brentwood School prayer

Almighty God, our Heavenly Father,
we ask your blessing upon our School.
Give us grace so to order our lives
that Virtue, Learning and Manners
may here forever flourish and abound.
Make us diligent, true and faithful in all things.
Help us to give ourselves in love and service
to others and to you,
that we may be led to know you,
whom truly to know is life eternal;
through Jesus Christ our Lord.
Amen

“Our school always finds ways to improve, develop and evolve the best education it can for all its pupils.
