Boarding Accommodation

While students are with us at Brooke House we hope that they come to view the college as their home and the Principal and the staff as their guardians. Boarding houses fall into different categories, supervised and over 18.

Boarding houses can be found on and off the main Brooke House campus. As a rule, all students under 16 will be accommodated on campus. Students will only be permitted to live in over 18 accommodation if they have parental permission. All supervised accommodation has at least one live-in, full-time, residential tutor. The over 18 boarding houses are supervised by the head of boarding & pastoral care.

  • ACCOMMODATION FACILITIES

Students are allocated in single gender, comfortable,well-equipped boarding houses. All the boarding houses possess a sitting room, with television and DVD player and a kitchenette where students can prepare their own snacks in the evenings and at weekends. All boarding houses are equipped with WiFi. While all accommodation blocks possess their own laundry facilities there is also a central laundry with industrial washing and drying machines. A common meeting point for students is the college’s recently refurbished Paul Kitchener Building, which has pool and table tennis tables available. The building is also equipped with a tuck shop, SKY TV and WiFi.

  • HOLIDAY ACCOMMODATION

Brooke House accommodation is open to all students during the half term holidays at no extra cost. Students in over 18 accommodation are welcome to remain with us during the Winter and Spring holidays, whilst the college is closed. Students in supervised accommodation are not permitted to remain during these holiday periods. As the academic demands at Brooke House are high, outside the classroom the college atmosphere is deliberately informal. Rules and restrictions are kept to a common-sense minimum. This allows both boys and girls to enjoy a pleasantly relaxed atmosphere and encourages them to respect their liberty without abusing it.
