Set in the village of Bradfield amidst unspoilt Berkshire countryside, Bradfield College enjoys a well-established reputation for being one of the country's leading co-educational, independent schools through its provision of academic excellence and a well-rounded education.

The College welcomes pupils from Britain and overseas and provides challenge and choice for all. We offer a personalised programme of study that is inspired by expert, passionate and engaging teaching and focuses on providing an education for life. We are acutely aware of the global community in which pupils will live and work when they leave the security and dynamism of Bradfield.

The Bradfield Sixth Form aims to provide an outstanding all-round education to prepare young people for success in a rapidly changing world. We care about the individual and pride ourselves in the warmth of a community in which young people feel happy and valued. We aim to foster an environment of high expectations in which all our students are encouraged to believe in themselves, to be inquisitive, to be resilient and to show ambition both within and beyond the classroom.

The IB Diploma Programme focuses on the education of the whole person whilst also seeking to provide an international perspective. This is very much in line with Bradfield's own education for life ethos and values. The IBDP emphasises the importance of Language, Science and Mathematics, as well as the Arts and Individuals and Societies. At the core of the curriculum model, Theory of Knowledge, Creativity, Activity and Service and Approaches to Teaching and Learning, both inside and outside of the classroom are all elements that Bradfield views as essential to an all-round education. We offer an unrivalled sports and co-curricular programme for all our pupils which ensures that every individual has the opportunity to develop valuable skills, wherever their interests lie. The need to complete the Extended Essay sits perfectly with Bradfield's drive towards creating independently-minded and curious young men and women by the end of the Sixth Form. In short, the IB Diploma and Bradfield fit perfectly together.
