Brendon Public School, originally Brendon School for Boys, was an English school.

It was a Queen Anne mansion originally called Brendon Court and was the country seat of the Mulle-Heskith family. It was sold in 1922 upon the death of Sir Barrie Mulle-Heskith and there was considerable debate on whether it should become a boys' school or an asylum. (PROSE: Mawdryn Undead)

Jacob Douglas attended Brendon School for Boys in 1973. (PROSE: Moon Blink)

In 1983, Alistair Gordon Lethbridge-Stewart, formerly the commander of the British division of UNIT, was a teacher of A-level mathematics at the school, and Turlough, an undercover Trion exile, was one of the students.

In 1983, Turlough and Ibbotson stole Lethbridge-Stewart's car from the school grounds and crashed it a short distance away. (TV: Mawdryn Undead) Their peers included Bolam, Matthewson, McMullen, Pradie, Rogerson, Shaw major, Shaw minor and Watt. (PROSE: The King of Terror)

On 1 January 1990, the Brigadier met his illegitimate son Albert Wilson for the first time when he visited him at the school. (PROSE: The Enfolded Time)

Charlie Gibbs was another of Turlough's classmates. However, Turlough did not learn until 2013 that Gibbs was also from Trion and that his family supported the opposing faction in the civil war. (AUDIO: Eldrad Must Die!)

Turlough's other classmates included Peter Smythe, Henry Lucas, Barney Adams and Kenneth Smith. (AUDIO: The Memory Bank)

Turlough enjoyed studying history while at the school. (AUDIO: Phantasmagoria) However, he hated William Shakespeare's works. (AUDIO: The Emerald Tiger)

In his 1996 book Who Killed Kennedy, the journalist James Stevens described it as "a minor public school for boys". (PROSE: Who Killed Kennedy)

Daniel Hinton also at one time attended the school until he was expelled in 1992 for dabbling in black magic; the fourth year dormitory was terrified and Matron's cat received a shock from which it never recovered. Twickers was the school secretary in the 1990s. (PROSE: Downtime)
