Bromsgrove School

Bromsgrove is one of the UK’s leading co-educational boarding schools. Catering for 1600 pupils aged 3 -18 and with 500 boarders, including international pupils coming from 40 different nationalities, together with a strong contingent of British boarders, the School is a small global community, a place to live, work and make friends for life. Bromsgrove School’s results are impressive, but Bromsgrove is much more than a place to get good grades, it prides itself on being a happy school where children of all ages can thrive both academically and outside of the classroom. The 2016 ISI inspection rated Bromsgrove as excellent in every category.   


Bromsgrove School stands in 100 acres of grounds in the centre of Bromsgrove town, 13 miles north of Worcester and an equal distance south of Birmingham. Birmingham International Airport and Station are a 20-minute drive by motorway. The M5, M6, M42 and M40 motorways provide easy access to the School.

Bromsgrove school has outstanding facilities with all boarding houses being new-build or completely renovated in recent years.  There is an on-going refurbishment programme so that the very high standards of accommodation are maintained. The sports facilities at Bromsgrove are extensive and were enhanced in 2012 by a £25 million building programme which included a major new sports arena with an eight badminton court sized sports hall, dance studios, gym, teaching rooms and hospitality suite / sports viewing room. These new facilities enhance the existing all-weather, floodlit sports facilities and extensive grass pitches for rugby and cricket.  The school has just started work on a new concert hall and performing arts centre which is due to open in September 2017.
