A Brockwood Education is Unique

Brockwood Park School is an international co-educational boarding school in the southern English countryside. We offer a personalised, holistic education for just over 70 students aged 14 to 19. The place is deeply inspired by J. Krishnamurti's teachings, which encourage academic excellence, self-understanding, creativity and integrity in a safe, non-competitive environment.

A Brockwood education goes beyond more traditional kinds of learning. Not exclusively academic, it integrates academic excellence in its mission to help students learn the art of living, and brings together aspects of learning, sensitivity, open-mindedness, and self-reflection that are too often ignored. We do this by engaging students to hold five insights in creative relation:

  • Freedom & Responsibility:
    A Brockwood education challenges traditional definitions of freedom as license, in order to nurture responsible human beings
  • Individuality & Community:
    A Brockwood education places individuals in a close-knit community so that they learn to surpass their individuality
  • Independence & Collaboration:
    A Brockwood education provides the inner and outer space for independent young people to naturally grow into caring inter-dependent adults
  • Expression & Rigour:
    A Brockwood education draws on the individual passion of students and teaches them to be rigorous by guiding them towards academic excellence
  • Reflection & Action:
    A Brockwood education encourages self-reflection so that our students become actors of change and not perpetrators of conditioned behaviours

This is the function of all education. We need to bring about a good society in which all human beings can live happily in peace, without violence, with security. As a student you are responsible for this.

Krishnamurti,
