Flair, discipline, academic rigour. That's what Bromsgrove is all about. Sensational academic performance achieved through hard work, not over fussy cherry picking; sport played to win at international, national and local level; creative work played, performed and exhibited to move the soul, not tick boxes on a CV.

Bromsgrove takes girls and boys between the ages of seven and eighteen in the hope of nurturing compassionate people who change the world for the better. First division A level performance and the sweep of the International Baccalaureate is combined with a massive sporting and extra curricular programme. Breadth and quality are not mutually exclusive.

The Curriculum is wide and varied, all GCSE pupils study the sciences as separate subjects and all study one or more modern foreign languages. In the Sixth Form pupils can chose either the IB Diploma or AS and A-levels, BTEC in Sports Performance is also offered in the Sixth Form. Bromsgrove results are outstanding: 85% A* to B grades at A level and an average score of 39 points at IB Diploma in 2015 and double figure Oxford and Cambridge entry every year. in 2015 29% of leavers went on to QS World Top 50 universities, with LSE, Imperial, KCL, Durham, Exeter and UCL being favourite destinations.

Bromsgrove has a vibrant arts scene with numerous opportunities for pupils to perform both large and small projects. Recent productions include the Schools version of 'Cats' by Andrew Lloyd Webber, a variety of Shakespeare plays and Sheridan's School for Scandal. A group of pupils will be performing their adaptation of King Lear at the Edinburgh fringe in August 2015. There are regular musical showcases for pupils to participate in from, from small intimate concerts to fun talent shows.

There is considerable strength, too, in sports and a large number of representatives at county, regional and national level. The School's U18 rugby team were winners of the NatWest School's trophy in 2015. The school runs an extensive activity programme with optional Saturday activities when pupils may select from a diverse range of recreational and academic activities. CCF is optional from age 14 and 300+ pupils participate in the Duke of Edinburgh's Award Scheme.

Among its 1,600 children aged 3–18, 500-year-old Bromsgrove School has nearly 500 boarding pupils. The School offers a home, not a place to sleep after work. Bromsgrove's recent investment in boarding has been immense, and both Prep and Senior School have witnessed expansion in this area. Indeed, the Prep School now has a large and dynamic boarding community. Prep School boarders are housed in a superb state-of-the-art facility, and weekly as well as full boarding is offered. Boarders of Prep School age have access to Senior School facilities and enjoy a seamless transition to the Senior School at 13.

The Senior School houses are different, as boarding houses in the best schools should be, but there are core values and structures shared by all. Each house has resident houseparents and a dedicated tutor team, doing day and evening duties on a rota basis: staff are on hand 24 hours a day, seven days a week. There are no exeats: Bromsgrove is always open at weekends. Nothing is more important than pastoral care - strong pastoral care defines a school as much as anything.

Bromsgrove's aim is to enable children to grow into adults who make a difference for the better. We advocate: Humility and Confidence, Compassion and Ambition, Respect and Curiosity, Tolerance and Vision.
