Bromley High School Supporting girls to achieve excellent outcomes by Louise Simpson, Head

W

hat makes a good school? Of course we want our children to succeed academically but what about the wider aspects of school life? The atmosphere, the ethos, politeness, enthusiasm and commitment of the pupils; all of these are essential parts of what makes an excellent school, and it is in such a school that your daughter will achieve her potential. At Bromley High School those ‘extras’ are essential. By providing excellent pastoral care, stimulating and challenging lessons for girls of a wide range of abilities, and by having an outstanding range of extracurricular opportunities, we constantly outperform local schools by every measure. Here you find happy, communicative, confident and well-rounded girls. Girls whose personal development is nurtured and encouraged by our excellent staff and whose academic performance benefits from all the additional activities that we offer to challenge, motivate and inspire them. Come and see for yourself ! Please come along to one of our open events. We also have taster days for prospective pupils which you are very welcome to attend. Email admissions@bro.gdst.net for more details or visit our website at www.bromleyhigh.gdst.net

Our Junior and Senior school classes progress through the ISTD Grades and pupils can take examinations which are held at the school regularly. We also have many adult classes with Zumba, Pilates, Ballet and Tap. We recently celebrated our 5th Year anniversary with our biennial dance production at The Concert Hall, Fairfield Halls, Croydon. Our Theatre Performance Company have also had many exciting events throughout the year including performances Her Majesty’s Theatre, London and will be performing at The Royal Albert Hall next year. Many of our pupils have performed with major productions such as The London Children’s Ballet, Croydon Pantomime and many have worked professionally in TV and Theatre.
