We develop responsibility by expecting students to actually help run the school, through early morning and evening farm duties, maintenance of the beds, borders and grounds, and by assisting with key events throughout the year. ‘Diligentia et labore’ or labour with diligence sums up the ‘Brymore way’. Manners, respect and hard work embody the traditional values we look to instil in all students so that they are prepared for life beyond Brymore. However we also provide a well rounded education, through an extensive range of extra-curricular activities many of which you will see described elsewhere on our website.
