Meet the Headmistress

Braeside is a small school with a big vision. We believe in the value of small classes in which teaching both extends and supports, where the teachers give quality feedback to pupils.

Braeside is an all-through school, which aims to nurture and develop the academic, creative and personal skills in each of its pupils from Early Years through the GCSE. Everyone at Braeside is valued as a unique individual who has their own contribution to make to the school community.

We aim for our pupils to always feel secure, valued and able to reach their own potential. Our small teaching classes encourage each one to develop their voice. We want to equip each pupil with the ability and confidence to make informed choices at every stage of their learning.

We give the pupils opportunities to develop their leadership skills through the house system and school council and to develop the necessary determination and work ethic to succeed. We encourage participation in the classroom and beyond it, through the range of extra-curricular opportunities, trips and visits.

A love of learning and high academic aims lie at the heart of the school, as does the personal development of our pupils at every stage of school life. You are most welcome to visit during a normal working day, have a tour and experience first-hand the opportunities offered at Braeside. I look forward to meeting you.
