Some people suit main-stream school, others don’t. Small schools are a smaller school environment which accepts students who don’t like or can’t work in a main-stream school environment.

Brockwood Park School is an example of a small school. Straight away the school my attention. It is situated in Hampshire which is about 1 and a half hour away from central London. It is a boarding school. It takes 65 students from 14-19. It cost £17,500 a year but can get bursaries.

Students are allowed to go home on Tuesday and Wednesday or are allowed to go into town and go shopping.

The school day is usually very busy but the evenings are more relaxed. There are plenty for students to do in the evening. They can join clubs, play indoor or outdoor games or just chat with friends. There is also small gym available.

The boys and girls both live in different buildings. The girls’ rooms are in the main house and the boys live in a different building called the Cloisters. Male and female staff members also live in the same areas.

The school has a very healthy living programme and is fully vegetarian and uses organic foods.

I would really like to go to a small school. The small school environment seems a good idea and I think I would be a lot happier.

      Well, when I was looking at Brockwood Park school it looked very welcoming and looked more like a home and not like a school. The school environment looked more relaxed.I would really love to go to Brockwood Park school. The only down side to the school is rhat your not allowed mobile phones, internet (which means no facebook 😦 ) , no television or ipods. But overall it looks very nice.

    How about making a list of things that work for you in this school, so we have an idea of the sort of environment that you feel able to study in.
    Are there things about a small school that make you feel safer than a large school?
    Is it just about the size of the school, or is there more to it than that?

      I will make a list of things today and post them as a comment tomorrow.
      I think being in a small school environment is a lot better than being in a larger school.

    Your definition of ‘tomorrow’ and mine are certainly different hbl! 🙂
    I have added Brockwood Park School’s blog to our Blogroll, but it seems we can’t comment there.
