2130th ANNIVERSARY ISSUEBHS
In 1883 the founding Headmistress of Bromley High School must have openedthe doors to her new pupils feeling a range of emotions; excitement, trepidation,determination and many others perhaps.Little did she know that, 130 years later, we would have moved the school lock,stock and barrel to a new site a couple of miles away, and that we would beproviding an education that is light years ahead of her experience in terms ofteaching, learning and technology. She could not have imagined the facilitiesthat we enjoy, the range of co-curricular opportunities and the strength of thepastoral care system, or that the school would have grown to 900 pupils.Times have certainly changed at Bromley High School, but thefundamental values have remained the same. Like Miss Heppel, we continueto put girls first and like Miss Heppel, we continue to provide a first classeducation for every single one of our girls, putting their individual needs atthe very heart of all that the school does. Like Miss Heppel we want toprepare the girls for a productive, exciting and successful future in the worldbeyond school, wherever that exciting journey takes them.I hope that you enjoy this special celebratory magazine that looks back at our 130 yearsof history and the changes which have happened both within and beyond the school in that time.Our year of celebration has been a time to reflect on all that we are proud of, and to look forward tothe next 130 years of Bromley High School. It has reminded us of what is important to the school andits wider community and we are delighted that this magazine edition has allowed us to crystallisea little of this to share with you.I hope that you enjoy the magazine and I thank the editorial team; Mrs Davies, Mrs Upton andMrs Woodfield, and all the many contributors, for producing such a wonderful publication.

Miss Mary Louisa Heppel was the firstHeadmistress of Bromley High School taking upher role in 1883. According to an extract fromSchoolgirl Voices - This position which she heldin the educational world of Bromley was unique.Her striking personality commanded alike
admiration, respect and affection, and her influenceextended far beyond the boundaries of the school
over which she presided.

One of the earliest photos of Bromley High girls in 1911,about to do their Swedish Drill in the hall. As one formerpupil recalls,We had Swedish Drill on Friday mornings.For this, we wore navy blue pleated skirts and long sleevedwoollen jerseys with pale blue ties. This was our only schooluniform duringWorldWar I and worn for Drill.
