Orchard Road and Widmore Road

Our second site at Widmore Road has opened, allowing us to offer the same high-quality education to more children at a location very close to our existing school.

This is a wonderful opportunity to become part of a new and exciting team at the new location with the support of the existing, experienced, and friendly team of Breaside.

The ethos of Breaside School is to provide high-quality all-round education. We are a top independent school, which aims to foster a caring atmosphere in which pupils and teachers are aware of and sympathetic to the needs of others.
