Information about the school

The School and Nursery

Bronte School is a co-educational independent preparatory school, age Kindergarten to Year 6. It is located close to the centre of Gravesend, with easy access to the station and the town’s facilities. Bronte Nursery, which provides care and education from age 3 months to pre-school, is located nearby, in a separate building.

The School has a family feel, with a single class entry, and an overall size which allows all teachers to know the children well. Academic focus is emphasised, with systems and a curriculum to challenge and stimulate, and to do so at each ability level. The curriculum has wide-ranging opportunities in each of the academic subjects and in sport, music, art and drama. On leaving the school, many children move to grammar schools (around 85%), others move to non-selective state schools and others to independent schools.

In addition to the Kindergarten, there are 7 classes, each of a maximum of 20 children, giving a capacity of 140.

The Nursery follows a similar ethos, looking to provide a safe, happy atmosphere, with a lively and full curriculum, where young children can grow and develop with confidence. Additional activities and lessons are provided in music, ballet, French and sport. The capacity is 70 children, and the Nursery operates from 7.30am to 6.30pm each weekday, for 51 weeks per year.
