Children and young people who experience Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND) will receive quality and meaningful educational provision at Bromsgrove School, in line with their additional requirements. Where appropriate, reasonable adjustments can be made to a young person’s lived educational experience, in order to enable access to the curriculum and other school activities. We recognise that all children are individuals and as such may have different requirements from education. It is our mission to provide an enriching and stimulating school experience, taking account of pupils’ individual differences. Our school orientation towards SEND is one of inclusion and equality of access and our SEND Policy provides further detail (available on request). There is an expectation on all teachers to have a foundational awareness of special educational needs/disabilities and that a sensitive and compassionate stance towards vulnerable learners is adopted at all times. As a School, we follow a graduation of response to all needs, providing enough support to assist a learner in their journey, but not over-supporting so to discourage dependency. We have significant expertise within school through the Curriculum Support department and our school-appointed Educational Psychologist, who work together closely to support children creatively and subtly. We regard a young person’s ‘voice’ as key to providing meaningful support. As a School, we reserve the right to amend our stance on SEND as a response to the everevolving research base, on which our SEND position is based.
Scholarships are offered to both internal and external candidates. Interviews and/or examinations are competitive. Candidates may apply for more than one scholarship. All external candidates wishing to apply for an academic (16+ only), music (11+,13+,16+), art or sports scholarship (13+, 16+) must complete a Scholarship Application Form together with a completed Registration Form and the Registration Fee. You may apply for multiple scholarships for each candidate on the form. Please complete a separate form for each candidate.
Bursaries and scholarships are not offered to international students upon entry to Bromsgrove. In order to fulfil our obligations under our charitable status they are only offered to local students who could not otherwise afford to come to Bromsgrove.
Bursaries are subject to parental means test and are awarded to enable reasonably talented boys and girls whose parents could not otherwise afford the fees to join the School. Candidates for bursaries will be asked to sit the Entrance Examinations at 11+ and 13+ and at 16+ to fulfil the Sixth Form entry criteria.
