Upper Sixth pupils take part in Oral History Project
Over the past few months the Upper Sixth A level and IB history students from Bromsgrove School have been taking part in the Oral History Project.
Awash with flair without drowning in pretentiousness, five hundred year old Bromsgrove is one of Britain’s finest independent schools. It’s a fizzing community with a warm, welcoming personality. Ancient, yes, but as twenty-first century as tomorrow: free from smugness and complacent public school drones. In spectacular facilities, we offer staggering breadth and first division academic performance to over fifteen hundred pupils, aged two to eighteen.
And yet: beware fancy websites and prospectuses. Bromsgrove is a school, not a soundbite: and I am a Headmaster not a marketing consultant. Every School seems to be educating “the whole child” nowadays and if you take the words from one website and stick them in another school’s prospectus you’d hardly know the difference. So, if you want lots of pictures of girls who look like they’ve walked out of shampoo commercials or angelic boys who look like they’ve never been real boys in their lives, please look elsewhere.
But if you want a caring environment offering phenomenal A level performance; the global perspective of the International Baccalaureate; nationally recognised sport; and a creative arts scene delivered with passion and pizzazz in a large, happy community of committed young people, then please do come and visit.
You will be warmly welcomed.
