Brantridge School continues to be open for the children of Key Workers and identified ‘Vulnerable’ pupils only. If you have not been contacted and offered a place, please do not send your child to school as we have staffing shortages. Your ongoing support is greatly appreciated.

School Enrichment

Pupils can enjoy a range of activities, all of which contribute to our needs led Curriculum and are dependent on the needs of the boys. Individual pupils are encouraged to join in activities to support their individual needs and build their self-confidence and resilience. The final lesson of the day has become curriculum enrichment. These sessions have been planned to take in to account the interests and needs of the pupils. Where necessary pupils can also be offered modified timetable sessions to access extra sessions of enrichment.
