Bromsgrove Schools golden age & Bilton Grange Commemoration ball
Bromsgrove School is ancient, but its golden age is now
After over 450 years of being a successful but relatively small School, Bromsgrove has, in the last few years, become one of Britain’s largest independents with 1,600 day and boarding pupils aged 2 to 18. That growth in pupil numbers has now been wedded to a build programme of titanic scope. The passion, vision and flair that transformed the School intellectually, culturally and on the games fields is now manifest in Bromsgrove’s latest facilities.
Hard on the heels of eighteen new Science laboratories (opened in 2011), come two new residential buildings for Senior girls (all en-suite), a new Prep School boarding house for pupils aged 7-13, an immense sports arena, a fitness suite, dance studios, a spectacular hospitality suite with dining facilities, a cafe for parents and pupils. The new residential accommodation gives weekly boarding options for local pupils aged 7 to 18. So, for those who might find the School run just a little too much, some of Britain’s finest boarding facilities are on hand to help.
Despite the grandeur of all these developments to the physical site, Bromsgrove remains driven by values. Knock all those wonderful buildings down and the essence remains: we are committed to nurturing moral young people who make a difference for the better. OFSTED continues to rate Prep and Senior School “Outstanding” and The Good Schools Guide says Bromsgrove “inhabits the academic stratosphere.” But it also says Bromsgrove pupils are “refreshingly free from false sophistication.”
We like that last comment.
