Bromsgrove's mission statement says - very deliberately - that the School wants to produce pupils who "respond" to change. Not "react" as if caught unaware, but "respond" as if purposefully answering a question. And the biggest questions facing humanity will only be answered if different races and cultures understand one another.
Though over twelve hundred of the fifteen hundred pupils in the constituencies of Bromsgrove School are British, Bromsgrove is home to almost forty different nationalities. We celebrate this and take enormous pride in the unique atmosphere such a demographic produces. Many large universities have less diversity than Bromsgrove, and when a pupil leaves this School, they will understand that no nation, no individual can stand alone. We dare to hope that seeds of future cooperation are sown in our classrooms, debating halls and playing fields.
Bromsgrove School is always delighted to consider bright, high achieving students who are likely to go on to top UK and other world-class universities. We do expect a reasonable level of fluency in the English language from the outset (though we offer a great deal of extra language support to our international pupils where it is needed). Pupils applying from outside the United Kingdom, are asked to apply via an educational agency. The main reasons we require the use of educational agents are to help pupils through the selection process, assist with paperwork, legalities and translation. In addition, since every pupil looking to enter Bromsgrove School has to sit our Entrance Examination, it is necessary for a registered body to administer testing.
If a pupil is already studying within the United Kingdom we normally ask the pupil to visit Bromsgrove School to be interviewed and assessed.
