What says..

Not an environment for risk aversion or comfort zones. Learning without fear, to ‘have a go at something and not be judged’, is the mindset.

Bromley High School has been offering an exceptional education to bright and talented girls since 1883.

A leading GDST and HMC girls’ school with superb facilities spread across a leafy 25-acre site, Bromley High School educates approximately 870 girls from pre-prep to Sixth Form.

Bromley High girls are resilient and well-rounded young women participating with enthusiasm and commitment in music, drama, art, sport, Duke of Edinburgh and an overabundant range of activities – and where they have interest or talent or enthusiasm, it is nurtured so that they learn to excel.

As the first all girls’ All-Steinway School in the world, the school continually invests in the music department, and offers its own Musician in Residence and specialist music wing. In 2020, the school launched a Steinway Scholarship and Mentoring Scheme offer the winning recipient coaching sessions throughout the year, a masterclass from a Steinway artist at Steinway Hall, private lessons with a Steinway artist and a solo recital at Steinway Hall. In 2021, the school’s first ever Steinway Scholar won a place to read Music at Oxford.

Sport is also exceptional: with 25 acres of top class facilities including a beautiful pool, new fitness suite, sports hall, gym, track and floodlit courts and pitches, providing the perfect environment in which to develop girls’ love of sport. Bromley High School has achieved huge successes in sport at regional and national level. The school’s under 16 team reached the National Hockey finals and were placed 3rd in the country and in 2021, Year 12 pupil Evie Davis won two gold medals with Team GB at the European Swimming Championships.
