The College welcomes pupils from Britain and overseas; the pupil body numbers approximately 740, comprising 480 boys and 260 girls from 13 to 18 years of age.
Boys and girls enter Bradfield at 13+ and many more join the College’s popular and vibrant Sixth Form. Faulkner’s, a state-of-the-art boarding house, is specially designed to help all girls and boys make a happy and successful transition from prep school (we recruit from more than 70) to senior school; pupils then move into one of 11 senior houses.
We offer an unrivalled sports and activities programme for all our pupils which ensures that every girl and boy has the opportunity to develop valuable skills outside the classroom, wherever their interests lie.

Faulkner’s - our distinctive approach to your child’s first year
The importance of your child’s first year at a senior school cannot be overestimated. Moving up from the security of junior school or possibly encountering boarding or co-education for the first time are all significant challenges for young people. In recognition of this, Bradfield College introduced a junior Boarding House exclusively for the entire Year 9 intake. It is here that we lay firm foundations for the future, so that the confidence of the girls and boys is enhanced as they establish their own identities within the freedom and space of a home environment.
