The second week after the holidays seemed to be very exhausting for the majority of our girls. The way back into a routine after three weeks of rest can be tricky and challenging sometimes, even the teachers were noticeably tired.

Nevertheless, the girls haven been practicing for junior house drama every day. Learning lines alongside the normal school day requires enormous discipline, which definitely merits appreciation and praise.
Friday, Anna and Kate competed in the house senior table tennis competition. The A team had to admit defeat to very strong opponents. The B team was a little bit more lucky but ceded victory to Housman Haul. Strong performance.

Looking ahead to next week, senior house badminton is taking place and as well as house drama.
Good Luck girls!

Dear Parents, Guardians and Girls,

Since the first week of the Lent term, a furry surprise awaited the girls. Mrs T has brought two adorable little kittens to our House, which now regularly stroll around our common room during activity or prep time. Both are about 10 weeks old and originally came from a farm.

Bella (grey) and Trixy (brown) have conquered our hearts in no time, and adjusted to many people and the attention, as they get comfortable for a small afternoon nap on Ms Linehan’s lap.



Regularly lifting our spirits and giving us a small break from School, we are happy to have them running around the common room. However, as we can already see them growing we know that they will return to the farm eventually, as we also have two House dogs. But until then, we will enjoy their company as much as we can.

Last night, the Fifth Form girls celebrated the end of their exhausting mock exam week with a pizza night in Mary Windsor. The atmosphere was enjoyable and the girls were visibly relaxed. They listened to some music and some girls even showed off their crazy dance moves!

Welcome 2018!

After three weeks without any commitments (except for those with mock examinations!) and lots of relaxation, we welcome back our girls in Mary Windsor! This well-deserved break was the perfect opportunity to spend some quality-time with the family over Christmas and New Year. Some would still say the break wasn’t long enough, others are certainly very happy to see their friends after a very long time. In any case, we came back fully motivated!

The start of the second term is tough. As the Headmaster said in assembly “no excuses”. Fifth form students have to take their GCSE mocks and the Upper sixth sit their mocks for the IB diploma. Good luck girls!! We are also looking forward to all the house events that are coming up soon starting with the fifth form pizza and pop, we will of course inform you about everything 

We hope that 2018 will be as successful, fun and enjoyable as last year, already now lots of amusing events are coming up from which we are impatient to tell you about.

Take a look at the photographs from our Christmas party, it was a super occasion and the perfect way to end the term.

Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow!

For the first time this year, Bromsgrove School saw snow gently trickling down.
Our School appeared in a totally unusual cosy atmosphere and the students seized the opportunity to organise a huge snow ball fight, as activities were cancelled!

Mary Windsor girls built a snowman, played in the snow, created snow angels and took amazing pictures with a beautifully white landscape.

That night, we decided to organise a little movie night. Isn’t watching a cheesy Christmas film while eating homemade popcorn the perfect way to end a fabulous day?
