A great British boarding school in UK. Sixth Form, IB and A levels. High school boarding! Bromsgrove School is a big co-educational boarding school located in Bromsgrove, Worcestershire, England. Bromsgrove's Sixth Form is larger than most with some four hundred pupils. This great British boarding School is deliberately configured so that many pupils can join us at sixteen. To a great extent, the academic results, IB, A level and BTEC options, Oxford and Cambridge successes, and fruitful applications to Russell group and other top universities account for this popularity. Lower Sixth pupils studying A level and BTEC qualifications must also participate in an enrichment Core Programme. The aim of this programme is to allow Lower Sixth pupils the opportunity to develop their breadth of knowledge and understanding across a broad curriculum. Independent learning will be encouraged with a final extended project opportunity and a lecture week after the examination period in the summer. All pupils will be able to take part in debates and also to experience more university-style lectures as part of the programme. This Top UK boarding school takes the preparation of pupils for Oxbridge entrance very seriously and, indeed, the programme for such pupils is a continuation of the extension courses we run from the Lower Fourth to the Fifth form. Bromsgrovians have studied a huge range of subjects at Oxford and Cambridge, and that proud tradition continues today.
The School has invested heavily in new boarding, sports and academic facilities over recent years. State-of-the-art, architecturally striking facilities sit alongside a range of beautiful older buildings some dating back to the 1600s. Sports facilities rival any in the country; all boarding houses are either brand-new or completely refurbished; all academic buildings (including 18 new science laboratories and a spectacular library) are cutting edge and the campus has witnessed redevelopment on a scale unparalleled in its history. However, it remains a peaceful 100-acre site full of trees, greens and playing fields.
