Established in 1958 by Mrs Mary Berkery, Broadhurst School began with a vision to raise standards in education with an accelerated academic learning programme. Trained as a Montessori teacher, she created a welcoming and calm environment especially designed for children to make independent enquiry and learn through practical and specialised methods. Now over 65 years old, the school remains in the family with Mrs Berkery’s son, Mr Brian Berkery, as proprietor. As competition for places at high quality independent schools is ever increasing, one-to-one daily sessions with each child form a bespoke part of our programme so that each pupil is well prepared for this important stepping stone.
