Added on: 2017-08-01Share on :

"To adventure in the natural environment is consciously to take up a challenge that will demand the best of our capabilities – physically, mentally and emotionally." These words sum up what Bryanston are trying to achieve at Bryanston in the field of Outdoor Education. When pupils enroll in Bryanston as a first year student, their inevitable lesson is to learn navigation and outdoor surviving skills.

"To adventure in the natural environment is consciously to take up a challenge that will demand the best of our capabilities – physically, mentally and emotionally." These words sum up what Bryanston are trying to achieve at Bryanston in the field of Outdoor Education. When pupils enroll in Bryanston as a first year student, their inevitable lesson is to learn navigation and outdoor surviving skills.  

 

Bryanston School

 

 

 

In New Lives in the Wild, a television series on Chanel 5 came out in 2013, shows Ben Fogle meeting people who have adopted 'alternative' lifestyles that are primarily off the grid in some of the more remote locations in on earth. During these exciting adventures, Fogle had seen extraordinary views, met various animals, and even made friends with orangutans. He took each adventure as an opportunity to explore and he's lucky enough to harvest unexpected gains. 

 

 

 

 

Living in the wild is challenging and needs essential skills. In fact, Fogle started adventure when he was educated at Bryanston School which highly values the benefits that outdoor programme brings to pupils' development.  

 

As a co-educational independent school for both day and boarding pupils in the UK, Bryanston School offers more than 100 different extra-curricular activities to inspire and engage every child outside the classroom. It has its own boathouse where new students can learn navigation and survival skills. In addition, the school also provide facilities for hawk training and canoeing. 

 

 

 

The school is famous for its One-to-One approach. One-to-one attention for the individual is at the heart of what Bryanston does. Before arrival at the School, each pupil is assigned with a personal tutor who takes care of the pupil's academic and extra-curricular growth throughout their time at Bryanston. With its particular focus on the individual, Bryanston wants pupils to be able to learn independently and to thrive upon it. Pupils are introduced to methods of learning and research by their subject teachers and through the provision of weekly assignment periods. By the sixth form, pupils spend as much time outside the classroom in one-to-one discussion with their individual subject teachers, undertaking their own research in assignment periods and working in prep time in the boarding house each evening- as they spend in the classroom learning with other pupils. 

 

 

 

Above all, the approach is to equip pupils with the skills to be resourceful, independent and creative in whatever path they choose to follow. With such approach, the School has nurtured prominent figures in a lot of fields, including Frederick Sanger the Noble Prize winner, Jago Cooper the Archeologist, Henry Prygos Scotland Rugby Captain, Eliot Paulina Summer the musician.  

 

 

 

 

The School is also notable for academic excellence. In 2016, 94.1% A*-C and 51.1% A*-A at GSCE; 88.7% A*-C and 40.1% A*-A at A level.

 

 

 

Leavers' destinations of the School include Oxford, Cambridge, Bath, Bristol, etc. 

 

 

 

 

"Education is not about moulding, nor are children end products. We believe that education is an exciting process, organic and ongoing; that pupils learn better actively, growing up in secure surroundings, than if passively taught."
