North Bromsgrove High School and Sixth Form Centre is located in the centre of Bromsgrove, Worcestershire, England. It offers education for GCSE and A level courses. The school was rebuilt in 2007 at the same time as it was designated as a specialist Media Arts College. It accepts students aged 13 to 18 from middle schools in the local area.[1]. Nick Gibson and Lee Gray are currently serving as the Interim Head teachers since September 2018. [2]


Facilities and key information[edit]

Close to the town centre, the recently built campus includes five acres of playing fields, a sports hall with dance studio, an Apple Mac suite, two drama studios, a radio station, and well-equipped science laboratories. The school also has a specialist autism base and specialist sixth form accommodation. Furthermore, the school has forged an unique partnership with adi, a local engineering firm, to provide GCSE students with an opportunity to participate in a pre-apprenticeship engineering course. Reflecting the school motto Abeunt in Studius Mores, North Bromsgrove has an established range of extra-curricular activities including the Duke of Edinburgh Award, National Citizen Service, (they were awarded a Champion School for the third year in succession in 2017) performing arts and sporting excellence. In 2018, the school was also a triple award winner at the North Worcestershire Young Enterprise Awards. It also provides an opportunity for students to participate in the Combined Cadet Force.

The new school was opened officially by an ex-pupil, the actor Mark Williams. He established an award in the name of former teacher Alan Holden and this is presented annually to the student who has shown the most dedication and commitment to the performing arts.

Catchment[edit]

The school's main feeder schools are Parkside Middle School and Catshill Middle School. Students also come from Alvechurch Middle School, Aston Fields Middle School and St John's Middle School as well as other middle schools in the surrounding areas of Redditch and Droitwich.

A significant number of students stay on into the school's successful sixth form and applications are accepted from students attending other schools as well.
