You are bound to have lots of questions. You may find the answers to those here. But if not, don’t hesitate to get in touch.
What are your fees?

How do I apply for my child to enrol?
Please visit the Applications page on our website to access the Application Portal, where you can submit your application online. Once this has been received, our Recruitment Manager will be in touch to arrange a prospective week.
How do I get to Brockwood?
We are just over an hour away from London and easily accessible by airplane from Heathrow, Gatwick or Southampton airport. Please follow this link for information on how to travel here.
What exams can my child take?
If students are looking for standard qualifications, we offer a range of subjects at A level from both international and UK domestic exam boards. These qualifications are equivalent to high school graduation levels across the world (EQF level 4), are recognised globally by universities and require a 2-3 year commitment. Interested students generally take 1-3 of the exam courses, which are designed for students aged 16 years and over. Non-native speakers are recommended to have a very good level of English before starting A levels. Despite our small size, we offer a wide range of exam subjects, assuming sufficient numbers sign-up. Some students opt for self-studying other examination subjects, but the school cannot offer taught classes in these and while it may be possible to arrange tutorial support, this cannot be guaranteed.
What age do you enrol students?
We enrol student between the ages of 14-19 years old.
Do you take weekly boarders?
No, we are a fully boarding school.
Is there anywhere to stay locally?
We have a list of local Bed & Breakfasts which we would be happy to email to you. Please contact the School Secretary for an up-to-date list.
When are your Open Days?
We welcome visitors on three occasions each year: September, March and May. Please follow this link for the current dates.
What is the Parents' Weekend?
The Parents’ Weekend has become established as the one time in the academic year when we have the opportunity to welcome the current parents fully into the School. During the weekend, they will have the chance to gain a better understanding of their child’s education here and to get to know the people involved in it. In addition to discussing their own children, it is also an occasion for parents, staff and students to explore together education and the significance of our daily lives.
Can my child go home on the weekends?
We discourage students from leaving regularly at weekends as this makes it more difficult for them to integrate fully into the life of the school. For family visits or other important appointments, we usually allow one weekend (overnight) absence per half-term.
On Saturdays, students may visit towns within the perimeter of Winchester and Petersfield but must be back in the school by 7pm unless they are with a staff member, or have permission from their parents and the school. Students cannot go to towns or cities outside this perimeter without written parental consent (unless accompanied by a staff member). Parents must send written consent to the school well in advance of the requested absence. The school may refuse permission if there is good reason to do so. If a student is going away overnight, parents must send a permission request as well. Parents need to inform the school of the address at which their child will be staying, as well as the contact person and contact information, via an online form provided by the school.
Can my child bring their mobile phone or laptop?
In order to maintain Brockwood’s special atmosphere and create a space for all students that is free from the strong temptation and pull by smartphones and similar screen devices (and their associated apps and social media platforms and messaging services), Brockwood restricts the access to devices in several ways. This being said, we do expect each student to bring one mobile phone to the school (smartphone or feature phone). However, access to smartphones will be limited to Saturdays and selected school trips. Please see our section on Computers & Phones for more information.
** For non-EU students sponsored under a Tier 4 Certificate, it is a legal requirement to have a mobile phone for use in the UK **
Will I need to apply for a Visa?
If you are from outside of the UK, are an EU, EEA or Swiss national then you may require a visa to study at Brockwood Park School. We have held a Sponsor Licence since 2009 and are able to sponsor students under Tier 4 Child Student and Tier 4 Student Visas. Please visit the Visa Information section for details on how to apply with your child.
