Assessment & Interview!

Assessment: All Bryden pupils go through the assessment process. This is a vital stage as it provides the Teachers with the opportunity to gauge your child’s educational, social and development areas. As a result, the Teacher can ascertain if Bryden is the right fit for your child’s educational journey.

Interview: While your child is being assessed, the Headmaster would welcome the opportunity to meet with you, as Parents/Guardians. During your interview he will be discussing your educational plan for your child and to gauge if your core values and morals align to Bryden’s and to Bryden’s ethos.


We asked Parents, What is it about Bryden Country School that most appeals to you? This is what they said:

"For us Bryden Country School is family. Our first child (Tadiwanashe) went through Bryden Country School. Tadiwanashe joined the Bryden community when he was in Grade 4, and what the school did with our son was truly amazing. Bryden moulded Tadiwanashe to be a complete student, who is well mannered and articulate. What appeals to us about Bryden Country School is the caring family community, its wholesome and well-rounded education philosophy that seeks to educate the entire child’s personality. Bryden also has very great teachers who are concerned about the child’s development. Our first son is a case in point. We also love Bryden’s small classes and its ethos of ensuring that every child participates in sport and extracurricular activities. We loved the fulltime boarding that Bryden had and hope that it does get re-introduced again. What appeals most about Bryden? EVERYTHING!!"
