The Curriculum

Boys thrive in our busy, friendly, and stimulating environment with outstanding teaching. Subject specialists ensure they are stretched and nurtured for entry to top senior schools at 11 and 13+ Boys collaborate with Broomwood Girls, for academic extension, sporting and creative activities.

Games & The Arts

All boys play matches in the major sports. Whilst inclusive, teams punch above their weight, even against much bigger schools. Wide-ranging clubs include karate, coding, and spy club. Vibrant music, drama and art departments with ambitious projects, multiple ensembles, and opportunities to perform.

Pastoral Care

Small class sizes and an excellent tutor system that ensures every boy has someone looking out for him. The small and friendly community enables staff and boys to get to know each other well. Boys are taught mindfulness and techniques to manage anxiety and the learning support dog Lyra is a popular member of the school. Parent partnership is actively encouraged and the Head’s office is always open.

Recent Scholarships

They exit at 11 and 13+ to a mix of day schools (e.g. Alleyn’s, Dulwich, Eltham and Whitgift) and boarding schools (e.g. Bradfield; Brighton College; Cranleigh; Charterhouse; Eton; Harrow; Marlborough; Tonbridge and Wellington).

Head Teacher’s Philosophy

‘The whole child is the whole point’. Academic rigour, a focus on traditional manners, outstanding extracurricular opportunities, and holistic care and, a school that puts a boy’s happiness centre stage to enable them to fulfil their academic potential.

Our children experience the best of both worlds by close collaboration with Broomwood Girls. Pupils benefit from sharing the facilities and teaching expertise across all school sites.
