Bromsgrove School operates a House system as opposed to a Form system which means that every pupil, whether boarding or day belongs to a House, a smaller unit within the larger School.
Every day House - there are six of them, four boys Houses and two girls Houses with one girls House - Oakley - being both day and a boarding House. Each House has a team of tutors led by a Houseparent and supported by housemothers who have no academic role and are there purely for the care of the young people in the House.
There is great loyalty to the Houses and much competition between them. Pupils know every other pupil in their House regardless of age. Leadership opportunities abound and important lessons about community are learned.
