Braeside School is an independent school for girls in Buckhurst Hill, Essex. It is part of the four schools in the Oak-Tree Group, located within a 6-mile radius on the South West Essex/North London borders. [1]


The stimulating academic provision in the Junior School is rooted in staff’s efforts to individually address the needs and interests of each pupil. The high student/teacher ratio allows the school to tailor the curriculum accordingly and thus provide personalised lessons for mathematics, English, science, history, geography, PSHEE, art & design and RS.


Pupils’ skills are further developed through a varied activities programme, which offers everything from book club, cookery, gardening and guitar to karate, street dance, violin and computer club. Consequently, girls get to cultivate their natural talents and discover new interests, form lasting friendships with peers and positive relationships with staff, and produce excellent examination results at the same time. [2]


Actively invested in boosting girls’ cultural awareness and respect for different faiths, Braeside enables its students to grow in appreciation of the codes and ethics of citizenship. As such, the school fully prepares them for harmonious lives, which they pursue with character, confidence and a strong sense of responsibility for their actions.
