The Curriculum

Outstanding results at all levels including the IB Diploma, the majority of pupils go on to top UK and world universities.

Games & The Arts

There is genuinely a big variety of sport on offer and Bromsgrove is consistently ranked in the top six independent schools for sport in School Sports Magazine. The school has recently had teams in national finals for hockey, netball, cricket and rugby. The extracurricular life of the school is hugely important with activities sessions every afternoon and on Saturday mornings. Pupils are encouraged to reach their highest possible level at sport, music, drama, debating, CCF and in numerous other areas. The school boasts impressive performance facilities with a dedicated theatre and a separate concert hall, both of which seat an audience of 300. Major productions take place every year.

Pastoral Care

Each boarding house has resident house parents and a dedicated tutor team. There are no exeats: Bromsgrove is always open at weekends. The school has a team of nurses who, under the control of the school doctor, provide on-site medical care in the school’s modern health centre. Pupils enjoy high-quality, varied food. Prep school boarders are housed in a superb state-of-the-art facility, and weekly as well as full boarding is offered.

University Places

Sixth Form leavers increasingly look at international universities for higher education, with a number of recent alumni successfully gaining sports scholarships in North America. One recent leaver won an art scholarship to the prestigious California Institute of the Arts.

Head Teacher’s Philosophy

Bromsgrove’s scope is staggering: from A-level to the International Baccalaureate, day to boarding, the arts to sport, pupils can soar. Utterly dedicated to the individual pupil, Bromsgrove looks to produce creative citizens with a strong moral compass.

Outstanding Characteristics

The passion, vision and flair that have transformed Bromsgrove intellectually, culturally and on the games fields is also manifest in the facilities available to pupils: the School is commited to providing pupils with the very best environment in which to live and learn.
