Learning Together

Welcome to Braddan School.

Here you can find useful information and guidance, as well as seeing what our pupils are doing as they grow their brains at school. If you have any ideas or suggestions on things to add, please let us know.

At Braddan we aim to develop the values of Respect, Caring, Listening, Professionalism, Fairness and Curiosity in all of the pupils, as well as modelling these as adults on a daily basis across the school.

You can read all about the Isle of Man Essentials For Learning by following this link https://e4l.sch.im to see what all the schools on the Isle of Man work towards together to provide the best education for your children.
