About Bromley Independent Grammar

Bromley Independent Grammar at Wickham Court was the ancestral home of the Heydon and Boleyn families since the 15th century.  The oldest part of the current house dates back to 1469, when Henry Heydon built his house at the height of the Wars of the Roses and its fortifications resemble more of a castle than a manor house.

The house is thought to have been the backdrop to King Henry VIII’s proposal of marriage to the enchanting Anne Boleyn – future mother of Queen Elizabeth I.  Our west window of the keep still contains a piece of glass depicting Henry and Anne’s Coat of Arms.

Our teachers are prepared to encourage independent reasoning, critical thinking and successful learning skills to ensure all students achieve their full potential. Our great student to teacher ratio facilitates interactive lessons, personalised feedback and adaptive teaching and learning. We go above and beyond in being supportive and caring while delivering outstanding educational opportunities for all our students.
