What the school says...
Abbots Bromley School is a popular boarding and day school set within impressive grounds, offering an amazing variety of facilities on one school site, such as an equestrian centre, where pupils may bring their own horses and the Alkins School of Dance, which offers vocational classes alongside the academic curriculum. From this year we are expanding our programme to offer Musical Theatre, in our newly refurbished facilities including the stage.
