Brockwood Park School is an international vegetarian boarding school for 14 — 19 year-olds, close to Winchester, Petersfield, and the village of Bramdean on the A272 in Hampshire. It was founded in 1969 by J. Krishnamurti, an Indian educational philosopher whose life (1895−1986) was dedicated to the urgency of change and living differently in all areas of relationship, whether with people or the planet. The school provides a non-sectarian forum for inquiring into the process of thinking, and into philosophical, religious and psychological issues.
About 65 students from 20 or more countries live and study together
within a climate and ethos of listening, inquiry and exploration. More
traditional examination subjects can be studied at AS and A-Level together with a great variety of non-examination subjects, activities and workshops, including art, dance, drama, ecology, ESL, music, pottery, sports, woodwork and yoga. Class size on average is around 7, allowing for greater interaction with teachers and peers. Termly concerts and informal evenings allow everyone the opportunity of discovering or developing their particular musical or dramatic talents in front of an audience.
Recent trips have included visits to the Lake District, to the Black
Forest, and to India, where there are a number of associated Krishnamurti schools. Students and Staff are together responsible for cleaning the school and maintaining the beauty of the grounds. There are a number of Open Mornings (March, May, November) and a website (www.brockwood.org.uk) with further details.
