We are a day and boarding school with a difference - our boys and girls are taught separately until the Sixth Form so we can tailor academic teaching more specifically.

Educational innovation across all disciplines is supported by nearly 500 years of history and tradition.

Some History

In 1557 Sir Antony Browne, the Lord Chief Justice, acquired the land on which Brentwood School was first built. During Mary Tudor's reign, hundreds of Protestants were burned at the stake and a well-known Brentwood Protestant, William Hunter, was ordered by Sir Antony Browne to be executed. This act may have led Sir Antony Browne to found Brentwood School.
