An independent report has rated pupils’ achievement and learning as ‘exceptional’ at Bromley High School.
The Independent Schools Inspectorate (ISI) gave the rare accolade to both the junior and senior school in an outstanding report in March this year.
In all other categories, including results and teaching, the school was awarded the top grade of ‘excellent’.
It was praised for its ‘distinctive curriculum’, which ‘provides all pupils with the opportunity to fully develop their individual interests and talents’.
“The comprehensive curriculum, complemented by the extracurricular provision, is a significant feature which encourages pupils to strive for excellence,” the ISI said.
The school was also commended for the opportunities offered for ‘creative enquiry...intellectual curiosity and independent study’.
In terms of pupils’ personal development, girls were said to display a love of learning while striving for excellence; ‘they are mature, articulate, confident...courteous, kind and appreciative...displaying a modest attitude despite their evident success’.
The report also praised the school’s pastoral care, saying: “A strong sense of mutual respect permeates the school and relationships between staff and pupils and between the pupils themselves are excellent.”
“Pupils speak highly of their teachers, recognising their professionalism, dedication and expertise,” it continued.
