By admin April 20, 2020

We love hearing news from our member schools and have been struck by the community spirit of staff and boarders. Bravo to all at Bromsgrove!

Peter Clague, Headmaster of Bromsgrove School, along with a small number of remaining boarders and residential staff who are living in one household within the School campus, have produced by hand a staggering 815 face shields in the School’s DT department for frontline NHS staff tackling the Coronavirus.

Former pupil Cllr Aled Luckman collected the first batch of shields for distribution and they are now in use on Ward 6 of the Alexandra Hospital, Redditch where Aled’s sister and former Head Girl is a junior doctor in Cardiology. 

More of Bromsgrove’s face shields are now being used to help protect staff across the region, from District Nurses, to Emergency departments and ICU.

Tracy Limbrick, a member of staff and pupils have also been busy making 35 scrub bags.
In addition, 290 pairs of goggles from various departments across the School have been delivered to County Hall for distribution wherever they are needed.
To date, the School has been able to help protect staff at:
