Introduction

Looking for UK best boarding school? Have a look at this one. We present here 10 Top Boarding School in Blandford, Dorset, England. Bryanston is one of the UK's leading independent boarding schools for boys and girls aged 13-18. We love this school for so many reasons and, as a bonus, the academic results are every bit as pleasing as the happy atmosphere: 49 per cent A*-A at A-level, and IB now an option. Teachers record weekly marks on an app so that parents and personal tutors (it's all very bespoke here) can see online updates anytime. It's been a sterling year for art, with an exhibition in Cork Street (Lucian Freud was an OB) - excitingly, a Manhattan collector bought a piece. In sport, back home on the banks of the Stour in leafy Dorset, the kayak team, which has a new boathouse, won the schools' Waterside Series last year and the rugby under-14s and under-16s claimed county titles. Hopkins Architects (who - get this - designed the Olympic velodrome, as well as Bryanston's award-winning Sanger Centre for Science and Mathematics) are working on a new suite of classrooms and a music block. Meanwhile, the musicians are by no means kicking their heels and have performed Verdi's Requiem at the Lighthouse in Poole, which is the big-deal venue in Dorset; the dance troue has entertained at Disneyland Paris; and the school band is the first to be deemed professional enough to play at a London jazz club.''

Location Description

Bryanston is located approximately 24 miles south-west of Salisbury and 14 miles north-west of Poole, just outside the Georgian market town of Blandford in Dorset. Please try to avoid Blandford town centre. It is very busy, and has a one-way system so it is very easy to get lost!
