  • Before making a single edit, Tropedia EXPECTS our site policy and manual of style to be followed. Failure to do so may result in deletion of contributions and blocks of users who refuse to learn to do so. Our policies can be reviewed here.
  • All images MUST now have proper attribution, those who neglect to assign at least the "fair use" licensing to an image may have it deleted. All new pages should use the preloadable templates feature on the edit page to add the appropriate basic page markup. Pages that don't do this will be subject to deletion, with or without explanation.
  • All new trope pages will be made with the "Trope Workshop" found on the "Troper Tools" menu and worked on until they have at least three examples. The Trope workshop specific templates can then be removed and it will be regarded as a regular trope page after being moved to the Main namespace. THIS SHOULD BE WORKING NOW, REPORT ANY ISSUES TO Janna2000, SelfCloak or RRabbit42. DON'T MAKE PAGES MANUALLY UNLESS A TEMPLATE IS BROKEN, AND REPORT IT THAT IS THE CASE. PAGES WILL BE DELETED OTHERWISE IF THEY ARE MISSING BASIC MARKUP.

Bromwell High (2005) is a British animated comedy.

Keisha, Latrina, and Natella form a Comic Trio at Bromwell High, an incredibly poor state school, and the show profiles the wacky hijinks of their everyday lives. The show also notably averts Two-Teacher School by giving the teachers just as big of a part (if not bigger) in the plots as the students.

The series' thirteen episodes aired on Teletoon, and had an incomplete run on the UK's Channel 4.


Tropes used in Bromwell High include:

Natella: Well? What did you think? Give me your honest opinion.
Keisha: You were shit. Shitter than shit. You were so shit that it made me want to block up my ears with shit, then eat some shit, and then do a shit.
Natella: Right. Latrina?
Latrina: ... Shit.

  • Comic Trio: Latrina, Keisha, and Natella.
  • Dialogue Reversal: The "unethical" exchange; Natella toward Keisha, and then later vice versa.
  • Dumb Blonde: Latrina, to an extent.
  • Dumb Muscle: Keisha.
  • Freud Was Right: Martin's math diagram.
    • Latrina's dream about a tunnel and a series of bigger and bigger trains.
  • Idiot Savant: Iqbal.
  • Only Sane Man: Natella - although she can be just as neurotic as any other character given the circumstances. Carol plays the straight man to Keisha an awful lot, as well, although Melanie plays the straight man to her when they're lusting after various men and Carol demonstrates her poor fluency with the double entendre.
  • Pyromaniac: Keisha, often to the detriment of the disabled students.
  • Really Gets Around: Latrina and Kellie Edwards.
  • Redheaded Stepchild: Kylie.
  • Status Quo Is God
  • Tourette's Shitcock Syndrome: Carol, although it's used as a one-off joke.
  • Two Lines, No Waiting: There's usually one plot for the kids and another for the teachers.
