The teaching groups at Bawdsey School are highly favourable with smaller than average classes.
As is typical for a village school, numbers fluctuate between 50 and 80 pupils. The pupil to teacher/ adult ratio is very favourable.
The 3 classes have been organised to facilitate comprehensive teaching of the National Curriculum ensuring that each child makes good progress through the programmes of study.
