Bromsgrove Preparatory School offers an exceptional all round co-educational experience for children aged 7 to 13, set within a 100 acre campus with a balance of boys and girls, day and boarding, offering families a real choice.
At Bromsgrove we are passionate about education. We believe that the right education creates a life-long love of learning and prepares children to take their place in the world as responsible, caring adults with good manners, self discipline, honesty and consideration for others. Academically, we combine high class modern teaching methods without forgetting the best of traditional values to create a climate where every child can flourish, and find where their particular talents lie.
We aim to nurture and challenge our children; we recognise that children need to be guided but also given the freedom to think for themselves and to develop a true sense of self. Individual achievements, and the importance of team efforts, are both highly valued.
All pupils are encouraged to achieve their best in academic, sporting and creative fields, while at the same time developing their social skills; manners, a respect for each other and those around them, kindness, helpfulness and a willingness to participate for the benefit of others.
The Preparatory School’s beautiful grounds offer the perfect backdrop for outstanding sports provision and play. We are proud of our excellent sporting reputation, achieved through strong coaching at all levels, and a commitment to provide all children with the opportunities to discover and develop their sporting skills.
Equally impressive is our reputation in the creative arts. Music thrives, with many of our pupils engaged in learning at least one instrument, playing in the orchestra or ensemble groups, or singing in the choir. Informal and formal concerts are highlights of the academic year. Drama is also strong at all levels in the Preparatory School and productions, small and large, regularly involve many of our pupils.
Among its 1,600 children aged 3–18, 500-year-old Bromsgrove School has over 500 boarding pupils. The School offers a home, not a place to sleep after work. Bromsgrove’s recent investment in boarding has been immense, and both Prep and Senior School have witnessed expansion in this area. the Preep School has a large and dynamic boarding community; eighty Prep School boarders aged from 7 to 13, are housed in a superb state-of-the-art facility, and weekly as well as full boarding is offered. Boarders of Prep School age have access to Senior School facilities and enjoy a seamless transition to the Senior School at 13. Staff are on hand 24 hours a day, seven days a week. There are no exeats: Bromsgrove is always open at weekends. The School has an on-site modern health centre, staffed by a team of nurses. Pupils enjoy high-quality varied food from chefs preparing three good meals a day.
