Bromley High School GDSTupcoming open day (click for details)
Set in leafy parkland and benefitting from first rate facilities, Bromley High School provides a beautiful and buzzy environment where bright girls will flourish.
In the classroom, each girl’s intellectual potential is challenged and developed by inspirational teachers whose concern for your daughter ranges infinitely beyond her performance in examinations; teachers who have a capacity to develop a love of learning, a spirit of enquiry and an independence of mind. Girls learn to collaborate and to compete; to be creative and intellectually curious and their learning is underpinned by the school’s ethos of achievement for all and by the subject passion, enthusiasm and expertise of their teachers.
In the 2016 ISI Inspection Report Learning and Achievement were graded as Exceptional.
Results are consistently superb. This year, 88% of A level results were A*-B and Bromley High was placed 79th in the Sunday Times Parent Power Independent School League Tables. Whilst we celebrate exceptional individual academic achievement – for example, one of our A level Chemists receiving the Salters’ Award for achieving the second highest mark in the UK in this summer’s A level examinations – the school is most proud of then consistently impressive Value Added results at GCSE and A level which demonstrate the care taken to bring out the best in every girl.
However, outstanding success at Bromley High School is not purely academic. Bromley High girls are resilient and well-rounded young women participating with enthusiasm and commitment in Music, Drama, Sport, Duke of Edinburgh and an overabundant range of activities – and where they have interest or talent or enthusiasm, it is nurtured so that they learn to excel. Sport is exceptional: with 25 acres of top class facilities, Bromley High hosts England Netball’s Regional Performance Academy. Our U16 hockey team are the reigning Kent County Champions – both indoors and out – and one of this year’s Leavers has taken up a Sports Scholarship to Princeton.
Our pastoral care is thoughtful and developmental, actively encouraging girls to develop key attributes: Confidence, Composure, Courage, Compassion and Commitment. Every class takes on the responsibility of supporting its own individual charity and the school has a highly valued tradition of volunteering and charitable activity.
We welcome you very warmly to our Open Events and Taster Days. We hope that you will like what you see – confident, cheerful, considerate girls enthusiastic about the myriad of opportunities their school has to offer.
