Its founders sought to provide young women with a broad and rigorous academic education far beyond the narrow range of female accomplishments intended to prepare young women for the domestic sphere.
Today, the school’s mission to inspire and empower girls through an exceptional education, has never been more important.
As part of the school’s birthday celebrations, Headmistress Mrs Codling held a special assembly where, following school tradition, the eldest and youngest pupils (Stevie and Matilda) cut a birthday cake together.
In the assembly, Mrs Codling also launched the school’s exciting programme of 140 Celebration events. As well as a House Afternoon Tea party and Gala Concert at the prestigious Royal Academy of Music, all pupils will be pledging 140 minutes of their time volunteering in the local community.
To mark yesterday’s birthday, Junior School pupils dressed up as a prominent figure from the last 140 years. Year 7 pupils formed a human 140 on the school grounds and all pupils were treated to a delicious 140th birthday cupcake.
Happy birthday Bromley High School!
