“A superb school that delivers articulate girls”
A superb school with excellent teachers and a strong and an inspiring leadership. The school is supportive and kind. The students they produce are rounded, confident and creative. My daughter has blossomed at Bromley High. Consider it without any reservation for your daughter. They will be happy as my daughter is, and you will content that you have sent her to Bromley High School. Year 11 Parent

My daughter enjoyed all her time in Bromley High and now has become a mature young lady. I am grateful that Bromley High has educated her to be independent and self-confident. Highly recommended.

Our daughter loves the school and her teachers; she has an inspiring headmistress who is wonderfully supportive. All of us are so grateful for the kindness and patience shown to our family by Bromley High.

Inspectors from the Independent School Inspectorate (ISI) found that pupils' achievement and learning in both the Senior and Junior School were 'Exceptional'. In all other categories, where Excellent is the highest grade, the school's provision was judged to be uniformly Excellent. 

The school's 'distinctive curriculum' was praised by inspectors and the wealth and quality of extra-curricular activities recognised as 'the strength of the school'.

Research tells us that girls and boys learn differently...

This means that they need to be taught differently if they are to make excellent progress.  In order to get the very best out of a class of girls and boys, therefore, one needs to teach two different lessons.  It is clear also from visiting co-educational schools, that girls and boys see each other differently and that, in such an environment, it is possible for these views to be emphasised.  In a girls only environment such as Bromley High, these stereotypes do not exist.  The girls have some girls only space in which to explore their interests and their passions and are supported in doing so by teachers who open their eyes to the myriad opportunities available to them, without suggesting that they follow any particular pathway.

It is undeniable that girls do better without boys around – and here we can make that happen for them.  As the only all girls’ school in the area, we provide the space and professional expertise for our girls to shine.  And the wonderful thing is – that as a day school, the girls can have a proper social life (after school and at weekends) with their friends - boys and girls.

We are proud to be a member of the Girls' Day School Trust:

Meet the Head: Angela Drew

Headmistress of Bromley High School since September 2014, Angela Drew was previously Deputy Head Academic at Epsom College.

Who/what inspired you to become a teacher?

I had a teacher called Mrs Smears who taught me English in senior school and she used to perch on the edge of her desk and lean out into the classroom, exuding enthusiasm. It was she who first introduced me to Pride and Prejudice and Romeo and Juliet.

I think everyone should be eternally gratefully to anyone who introduces them to Austen or to Shakespeare because it’s just a permanent source of joy. 

What achievement are you most proud of as Head?

As a head you take pride in what the girls do; all the kind of glittering prizes that you expect from a school like Bromley High, but in reality the greatest pride that anyone takes is from what the girls are, and the people they are growing up to be. 

I think as a head the proudest moment in any week is to look across the assembly hall, and we have a huge assembly hall, and you see all those faces with their enthusiasm and their idealism and their generosity of spirit.  It just makes you hugely proud to be at the school

What does a successful school look like to you?

Busy, buzzy.  I think actually, with a girl’s school it’s not what it looks like; it is what it sounds like. 

When girls love their lessons, when they are happy with each other’s company you hear the sound of chatter. You hear the sound of laughter very frequently in this school; it is the sound of girls building friendships and that is what is going to last them for life.

What is the most important quality you want every child to have when they leave your school? And why?

Resilience.  It’s a tough world sometimes and everybody, however successful, however fortunate, is going to have ups and downs in life.

We want to teach the girls to develop a sense of balance; to balance their academic success with other things that will bring them joy, pleasure and relaxation; good friendships, a healthy sport.  

Also a breadth of vision for charitable fundraising, for volunteering, for involvement in the local community. They need to live a balanced, resilient life because we all know as adults that life isn’t always easy.

Please give 5 words to describe the ethos of your school.

Exceptional, innovative, caring, friendly and happy.
