Pupils come to Bromsgrove not just because A Level and International Baccalaureate are taught superbly, but because sport is phenomenal and the arts fizz. It’s a passionate place with a dash of pizzazz to boot. With over 500 full time boarders from the age of 7, life at Bromsgrove is exciting and challenging. The Saturday activity programme (we have no Exeat weekends) allows pupils to participate in a huge variety of extra-curricular activities.

Bromsgrove Senior and Prep School lie in one hundred acres of grounds with grass pitches galore. A newly built sports arena big enough for eight badminton courts and with seating for 500 is of a national standard and this together with a refurbished indoor swimming pool, new dance studios, hospitality suite for post match teas and other functions sits alongside our existing sports facilities: two sports halls with climbing walls, two floodlit astroturfs, squash courts, tennis and netball courts, extensive grass pitches and a 400 metre running track (at the adjacent Ryland Centre). The superb Outdoor Education facility of Upton Warren is a mere five minute drive away, and there pupils can engage in a host of activities from sailing and kayaking to climbing and ropework.
The school has invested over £22 million in building and development since 1994 and recent additions include a £2.5 million Art, Design & Technology building, an impressive Library and resources centre and a campus-wide broadband ICT network providing over 500 PCs for pupil use.
