A TASTE of life at Bredon School is on offer at the annual open day tomorrow (Saturday).

The independent school is giving children the chance to try activities such as cooking, art, sport, engineering and music, alongside current pupils.

Head Mike Newby said: "Bredon is open to children aged seven to 18 and we would love to meet boys and girls anywhere in that age range."

The day and boarding school was founded in Bushley, near Upton, in 1962. It specialises in educating children who have struggled at previous schools.

Since the 1970s, Bredon has developed an international reputation for providing expert help to dyslexic children, who currently make up around 40 per cent of the pupils.

The open day runs from 10am to noon. Families planning to attend are asked to let the school know first on 01684 293156 or enquiries@bredonschool.co.uk.
