"Creating a Culture
of Gentleness"


  • Staying Safe

    Bradstow is a very complex organisation and a centre of excellence in its own field. It offers a lifeline to pupils and families, many of whom were on the brink of giving up hope that 'the system' was failing them. We offer them a supportive environment in which to grow and learn.

  • Joining In

    Bradstow want all our pupils to feel included. We organise activities which involve all students, from beach walks to swimming. Pupils mix together and everyone is an important part of our school community. Our holistic approach addresses every aspect of our pupils’ wellbeing.

  • Keeping Active

    At Bradstow we place a strong emphasis on keeping active. We have a fitness room to help pupils with fitness and coordination. 2011 saw the opening of our brand new sports pitch/ interactive highway. Here our students can play sports like football, plus learn to safely ride bicycles.

  • Express Yourself

    At Bradstow we want our pupils to learn new things and enjoy hobbies. We consider music to be particularly theraputic as it lets them express their creative side. We place great emphasis on the individual by letting our pupils build their confidence by finding something they're good at.

  • Communication

    It is very important for all our pupils to keep communicating their needs. Out trained staff work with every young person to help them express their feelings and be heard. We want everyone to be able to interact with others and feel part of the group and wider community.
