As we approach the end of another remarkable school year, I am delighted to reflect on the numerous achievements and progress we have made together. It has been a year filled with academic excellence, personal growth, and unforgettable experiences for our pupils. This has been a tremendously successful academic year, and for those who were able to attend our prize-giving ceremony, I’m certain you caught a glimpse of the numerous highlights through the various presentations and awards, including the inspiring speeches delivered by our Head Girl Ramya Vaheeswaran and keynote speaker Rudo Manyemba.

Our students at Bromley High School continue to enthusiastically embrace a rich and well-rounded education delivered by exceptional teaching and supportive staff teams, to whom I would like to express my immense gratitude for their hard work and dedication over the past year.

Throughout the year, our students have excelled in various competitions, festivals, and extracurricular activities.  We have had a Minerva Symposium as well as LAMDA examinations as well as several Careers Fairs.  Whether it was excelling in debating competitions, drama festivals, or fieldwork expeditions, our students have demonstrated drive, determination and excellence.

The Music department has once again captivated us with their exceptional performances, including from our talented Steinway Scholars.  From the memorable autumn production of High School Musical to the festive Christmas Concert and the unforgettable Charity Cabaret Concert, our many of students have showcased their remarkable musical abilities.

The Art, DT, Drama, Dance, and Music departments have united to present a combined evening event that truly displayed the remarkable talents of our pupils.  More girls than ever have participated in team sports this year and this half term our wonderful PE department oversaw two sports days alongside their regular array of fixtures.

In the past few weeks alone, alongside busy public and internal exam schedules, our girls have participated in academic excursions to Nettlecombe Court and Hampton Court, as well as thrilling adventures at Chessington and Go Ape.  From cultural visits to Paris and Disneyland to witnessing the magic of Wimbledon, they have truly embraced every opportunity for growth and enrichment.  We also held a Year 11 farewell BBQ and a 6th form graduation and prom, to celebrate all the hard work put in by our wonderful Y11 and Y13 pupils.

As we look back on this eventful year filled with achievements and memories, let us continue to embrace the opportunities that Bromley High School offers.

Last week we were thrilled to share two significant announcements that mark new and exciting developments for our school.

Bromley Council has granted permission for the much-anticipated transformation of our frontage and courtyard. This approval represents a significant milestone in our project to enhance the school’s facilities. Over the summer, we will initiate a tender process to select a lead contractor to undertake the works. Early in the Autumn term, we will provide more detailed information about the final designs and the project timetable. This transformation will greatly enhance our school’s environment, providing an even more inspiring and functional space for our pupils.

We were also very proud to announce that our school has been shortlisted for the prestigious Independent Girls’ School of the Year award. This recognition is a testament to the unparalleled student experience we offer and the exceptional achievements of our pupils. The judges will convene at the end of summer to decide the winners of each category, with the results being announced in September. Being shortlisted for this award highlights the dedication and hard work of our entire school community, and we eagerly await the final decision.

As we prepare to embark on the summer break, I would like to extend my heartfelt gratitude to our dedicated staff, supportive parents, and most importantly, our incredible pupils. Their unwavering commitment and enthusiasm have been instrumental in making this year so successful.

September will bring a sense of excitement, and I look forward to welcoming new pupils and staff to the school.

I wish you all a restful and enjoyable summer.

Mrs Emily Codling, Headmistress
