Bradbury School is part of the English Schools Foundation (ESF). ESF is the largest provider of English-medium international education in Hong Kong. Our vision is for every student to be the best that they can be. Our mission is to inspire creativity and nurture global citizens and leaders of the future. We do this by creating joyful learning environments, led by a community of exceptional teachers who bring out the best in every child through a personalised approach to learning and by inspiring curious minds.
Bradbury School offers a caring environment, providing children with an all round education of the very highest quality. The calibre of all of our staff and the positive, encouraging approach in our classrooms produce outstanding results. We encourage our children to become independent thinkers who are curious about the world around them and who develop the skills to become learners and leaders. We place a high importance on partnership with parents and see this as a cornerstone of how we operate on a daily basis. We have a very active and hardworking Parent Teacher Association who contributes much to the life at our school and we are governed by a knowledgeable School Council.
Bradbury School is an IB World School, is a Council of International School (CIS) accredited school, and is a member of The Association of China and Mongolia International Schools (ACAMIS) association. We use the Primary Years Programme (PYP) as the basis of our instruction and to underpin our beliefs as expressed in our school mission statement – to inspire learners, inquire together and to enhance our world. At the same time, we place a high value on our students becoming numerate and literate in a 21st century learning environment and embrace an extended concept that new technologies offer us. Chinese is offered to all students, with levels of instruction adjusted according to ability. Bradbury School operates an Intensive English Class (IEC) for Year 1 students who do not as yet have the necessary levels of English. This class focuses on scaffolding language learning as a priority through the Unit of Inquiry.
The school has excellent resources, offering a number of specialist subjects in dedicated spaces. We have a state of the art library, which is seen as the hub of inquiry throughout the school. In addition, we have a full gymnasium, school hall, music room, including soundproof studios, netball courts, a variety of large adventure playgrounds installed across various levels, undercover play areas, a large free form sandpit and art studio. Bradbury has an extensive sports programme and offers amongst others, rugby, netball, cricket, soccer, swimming, basketball and running, as well as other activities such as judo and kick boxing. The school makes provision for 21 children with moderate learning difficulties through a Learning Support Programme and we believe in a full inclusion approach for all of our students.
