Bromsgrove is a co-educational boarding and day school for 1500 pupils. 900 of these are in the Senior School (HMC 13-18), 470 in the Prep School (IAPS 7-13) which is on an adjacent site but makes use of many of the facilities of the Senior School. Dating from the Middle Ages, and as one of the founding Schools of the Headmaster's Conference in 1869, the School values its tradition but looks strongly to the future.

£24 million has been spent on new facilities since 1994. Work is currently underway on new wings to the existing sixth Form boarding house. All boarding houses have been recently renovated or are new builds, offering boarding facilities of the very highest standard. Opened in June 2012, the new sports arena has seating for 500 and is regularly used for regional and national sporting events. Other recent improvements and additions include extending and refurbishing the science facilities, a new 20 classroom Humanities block and a new ADT facility.
The School boasts excellent sporting and extra-curricular facilities: as well as the new sports arena and fitness suite, it has two floodlit astroturfs, an indoor swimming pool and Sports Hall. The School has a national reputation in a number of sports with many pupils gaining national and regional representation honours.
A full programme of Art, the Performing Arts and Outdoor Pursuits, all pursued to the highest level, is an essential part of the life of the School, as is a strong Combined Cadet Force. Combined with courses in the Sixth Form, one of the benefits of this programme is the excellent leadership training which it provides.
