''Bromwell High'' is a [[BritishSeries British]] [[AnimatedShows animated comedy]] that aired in 2005.

[[DumbMuscle Keisha]], [[ReallyGetsAround Latrina]], and [[OnlySaneMan Natella]] form a ComicTrio at Bromwell High, an incredibly poor state school, and the show [[SliceOfLife profiles the wacky hijinks of their everyday lives]]. The show also notably averts TwoTeacherSchool 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 Creator/{{Teletoon}} in Canada, and had an incomplete run on the UK's Channel 4.
!!This British animated series provides examples of:

* AbsurdlyPowerfulStudentCouncil: The student council president is given absolute power, even above that of the headmaster, though this is only discovered by digging through the school records.
* AbsurdlyYouthfulMother: We never see her on-screen, but Latrina's mother is apparently younger than 25 ([[{{Cloudcuckoolander}} if Latrina is to be believed, that is]]). This leads to a bit of FridgeHorror when one considers that Latrina herself is 12. And for a run-down, poorly performing ex-Secondary Modern that's one bad exam year from the dreaded Special Measures like Bromwell it's [[TruthInTelevision depressinly plausible.]]
%%* AlwaysSomeoneBetter: Tamsin.
* AllWomenAreLustful: The two female teachers tend to fight over the attentions of any new adult male characters.
* AmbiguousDisorder: Keisha: while she's often stated to have ADHD, she also displays tendencies towards other disorders in other episodes. Given that many of these traits are often mined for jokes, it seems to be based on RuleOfFunny.
* AmbiguousGender: Keisha's relative Marlong, who is referred to as her aunt in one episode, and her uncle in another. Doubles as AmbiguousGenderIdentity: they may have testicles and are suggested to be transgender, through whether they're female-to-male or male-to-female is unknown. They ''do'' have a gender they identify as, but Keisha's ignorance and confusion keep us just as confused as she is.
* ApatheticTeacher: A school full of them. ''Especially'' Martin.
%%* AreYouPonderingWhatImPondering: Natella often asks Keisha this.
* BeautyBrainsAndBrawn: Latrina is the most beautiful girl in school, Natella is the smartest kid in school, and Keisha is the strongest kid in school, respectively.
* BritishBrevity: Thirteen episodes.
* ButchLesbian: Ms. Gosby, who has a husky voice, bulky body and is often compared to a man. A comment from Mrs. Jackson confirms that Ms. Gosby's unseen wife is also one.
%%* ButtMonkey: Kylie and Mr. Jackson. Natella as well, to an extent.
* CatchPhrase: Latrina has a bunch; most common are "*blank* is for gays!" and "Like me that time."
%%* {{CloudcuckooLander}}: Latrina and Mr. Philips.
* [[ClusterFBomb Cluster S Bomb]]:
-->'''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.
%%* ComicTrio: Latrina, Keisha, and Natella.
%%* CouchGag: Headmaster Iqbal's announcements.
* CourtroomAntic: "Keisha's in Love" provides what may possibly be the weirdest and most implausible example of this trope ever broadcast on television. Keisha is put on trial to determine whether or not she has a crush on Spencer. When it is proven that she does indeed have a crush on him, instead of going to jail for assaulting ([[{{Yandere}} and nearly killing]]) him, she is sentenced to ask him out on a date. [[InsaneTrollLogic Wait, what?]]
* DialogueReversal: The "unethical" exchange; Natella toward Keisha, and then later vice versa.
* TheDitz: Both Keisha and Latrina, though both may qualify as {{Genius Ditz}}es: see the entry for HiddenDepths, below.
* DumbBlonde: Latrina. In the episode "Police Story", her attempts at locating the cell phone thief mostly included overlooking ridiculously obvious clues, she didnt even realize she had stumbled across the case breaking clue until it was explicitly spelled out for her.
* DumbMuscle: Keisha. She rules the school through her violent ways and incredible strength, but she's one of the stupidest characters on the show.
* DreadfulMusician: Natella and her sitar. The only cheers it got during the Music Talent Show was when Mr Beale smashed it.
* ExtremeOmnivore: Keisha eats her exam in "Goodbye Mr. Crisps".
%%* GRatedDrug: The contraband candy.
* HiddenDepths:
** In the episode "Natella Takes Charge", Keisha shows surprising political savvy and hints of a [[ManipulativeBastard manipulative]] side. In that same episode she also wonders who the next Creator/JonathanSwift is going to be in response to Natella asking AreYouPonderingWhatImPondering, which is odd for someone who is supposedly illiterate. Not to mention that, in other episodes, she displays small tidbits of knowledge that most people wouldn't expect her to know.
--> '''Keisha''': [[ItMakesSenseInContext (while beating up a beauty pageant contestant)]] Lithuania is not a country, ''bitch!''
** In "Sack Race" we learn that Latrina is very athletically gifted to the point of being able to beat school records, though she chalks it up to the influence of [[MagicFeather Leroy Thomas's old vest]]. And in "Drama Queen", she displays a raw talent for acting that gets her fast-tracked to play the lead in Carol's play.
* HollywoodTourettes: Carol, although it's used as a one-off joke.
%%* IdiotSavant: Iqbal.
* InfantImmortality: Possibly averted at the end of "Baby Boom". The ultimate fate of Latrina's baby half-sibling is unknown, but it's safe to assume that s/he died [[ItMakesSenseInContext while being shipped to Japan in that doll box]].
%%* InsufferableGenius: Natella.
%%* {{Jerkass}}: The entire cast, especially Iqbal and [[TheSociopath Mr. Bibby]].
* NotSoAboveItAll: Natella: she often tries to do the right thing and usually comes off as the OnlySaneMan, but under the right circumstances, her pride can get the better of her and make her act just as dysfunctional as anyone else in the cast.
* OnlySaneMan: 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.
* PowerCorrupts: Natella, literally any time she's put in a position of power.
* PrecisionFStrike: One of ''many'':
-->'''Iqbal:''' Remember: a vote for Iqbal is a vote for jobs. ''Your'' [[FunetikAksent moddafockin']] jobs!
* {{Pyromaniac}}: Keisha, often to the detriment of the disabled students.
* ReallyGetsAround: Latrina, Latrina's mother, and Kellie Edwards.
%%* RedHeadedStepchild: Kylie.
* ARiddleWrappedInAMysteryInsideAnEnigma: As Mrs. Jackson is explaining her separation from her husband to the main characters:
--> '''Mrs. Jackson:''' As Churchill said, Martin is "a riddle, wrapped in a mystery, wrapped in an enigma".
--> '''Keisha:''' [[BreadMilkEggsSquick Wrapped in a cocksucker.]]
--> '''Mrs. Jackson:''' I don't think Churchill said that.
* SadistTeacher: Most of the teachers to some extent, but special mention goes to Mr. Bibby who is heavily implied to be involved in everything from murders to human trafficking with Iqbal.
%%* StatusQuoIsGod
* TroublingUnchildlikeBehaviour: The three main characters are 12 years old: Keisha is an EXTREMELY violent troublemaker, and Latrina is incredibly sexually loose. Natella isn't as bad as either of them, but under the right circumstances, she can do some pretty messed-up things, such as in "Natella Takes Charge", where her power quickly goes to her head, and she becomes disturbingly unsympathetic to the plight of her classmates.
* TwoLinesNoWaiting: There's usually one plot for the kids and another for the teachers.
* UnfortunateNames: Latrina, as in [[ToiletHumour "latrine."]]
* {{Yandere}}: Keisha, in the episode "Keisha's in Love", where her love for a student (and her inability to understand her feelings) is processed through acts of violence against him.
** "Drama Queen" shows that Mrs. Jackson is one. On the heels of her separation with Martin, she writes a play that's clearly inspired by their marriage. The play's name is "If You Don't Come Back to Me, Martin, I'll Kill You."
