Admission to Bromsgrove School
Pupils may gain admission to Bromsgrove School in most year groups. Main intake points are at Kindergarten, 7+, 11+, 13+ and 16+. Admissions in the course of an academic year are by special arrangement with the Assistant Head (Admissions) and entry into Year 10 is not normally possible due to curriculum constraints.
We encourage parents and children to visit the School by attending one or our regular Open Mornings and we also welcome individual visits. Taster days are available for boarders and day pupils. Open Mornings for all sections of the School are held at regular intervals throughout the year. These events offer the opportunity to meet senior staff from the individual school sections which interest you. We also offer a tour of the School and the opportunity meet other staff and pupils. Please contact Mrs Amanda James for further information by email or submit an online visit request here. All candidates sit our entrance examinations although at 13+ we do accept Common Entrance. In the case of girls and boys entering the Sixth Form from other British schools, offers and subsequent admission to the School is based on interview and GCSE results. Parents seeking the admission of their sons or daughters are asked to complete the appropriate application form which can be found within our admissions information booklet or can be downloaded from the website. The Registration Fee of £100 for a day place or £200 for a boarding place is payable at the same that Registration Forms are submitted. When a place is offered to an applicant, parents are asked to confirm acceptance and to send an acceptance fee. Our Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND) information can be found here. Our Admissions team are always happy to give advice and help regarding any application to the School.
Bromsgrove School provides a high-calibre education at a very competitive cost for children of personnel in HM Forces. Forces Discounts are automatically awarded on joining the School and we ensure that fee contributions are no more that 10% of the net fee throughout the School. Please contact the Admissions Office for more information about Forces Discounts or view our document here.
Entry into the Pre-Preparatory and Pre-School
Prior to entry, children are invited to spend a morning in school with their prospective year group, during which informal assessments will take place. Children seeking admission into Year 2 will also be assessed more formally in Mathematics and English. This trial morning provides an opportunity for the children to experience life at Bromsgrove Pre-Preparatory and Pre-School and to get to know the children in their future class. If a child is moving from another school they will be asked to bring examples of their current work in Mathematics, English and Reading. We will also contact the child’s school for a written report about their academic achievements and behaviour.
