Day

Nestled in the heart of picturesque Cheshire countryside in the small town of Marple, Brabyns Preparatory School is a co-educational independent day school for children aged two to eleven.

At Brabyns each child is valued as an individual and encouraged to achieve to the best of their ability. Our unique surroundings and warm family ethos provide a peaceful and nurturing environment for the positive development and growth of all children at the school. Children are engaged with learning and given the support, encouragement and freedom they need to develop through exploring new opportunities.

We acknowledge and appreciate each child's individual strengths and characteristics. They are instilled with confidence in our happy, caring environment whilst developing excellent life values and skills.

What are UK 'Independent Schools'?

A UK Independent School is independent of its finances and governance and typically charges fees for attendance instead of being funded by the UK Government. Pupils at Independent Schools (synonymous with ‘Private Schools') don’t have to follow the national curriculum.

Ofsted inspects half of all UK Independent Schools. The Independent Schools Inspectorate inspects schools that are members of the associations that form the Independent Schools Council. The School Inspection Service inspects some other schools.

Independent Schools are typically governed by a board of governors that is elected independently of government and has a system of governance that ensures its independent operation.

Independent Schools in the United Kingdom play a central role in education both UK & International students contribute over £9.5 Billion to the UK economy.
