About Bradfield College - NEW FOR 2017!

Bradfield College was founded in 1850 by Thomas Stevens, and is set in its own village amidst unspoilt Berkshire countryside. Bradfield College enjoys a well-established reputation for being one of the country’s leading co-educational, independent schools through its provision of academic excellence and a well-rounded education. The school is based 10 miles from Reading a large, thriving, modern city.

It is noted for producing plays in Ancient Greek and its Greek Theatre. The Greek Theatre closed in 2009 for restoration and, following a £1.3 million appeal, reopened with a performance of Antigone on 20 June 2014.
