Our purpose is to develop well qualified, confident and appreciative individuals who show tolerance and co-operation and are ready to play positive roles in the international community.
The number on roll is 1588, including 475 students in the mixed sixth form. We serve a generally affluent community and parents have a choice of Bullers Wood as a comprehensive school for girls or selective education within Bromley and other LAs (Bexley, Kent). The proportion of girls eligible for free school meals is below the national average. About a quarter of the total roll is from an ethnic minority background and some 20 languages are spoken. Very few students are learning English as an additional language. The behaviour of students is excellent, with the vast majority keen to learn and succeed.
In 2018, 82% of students achieved 5+ GCSE’s at A* - C (9-4) including English and Maths, and just under 50% of A level results were graded A* - B.
