Sport & Leisure

At Brooke House College we appreciate that as students are faced with a competitive academic environment it is very important for them to have the opportunity to relax.

We encourage our students to live balanced lives, combining hard work with full participation in our varied programme of sporting, cultural and social activities. Our Sports and Social Organiser tries to ensure that there is something for everyone in terms of extra-curricular events. In college we organise discos, film evenings, debating nights, chess, table tennis and pool competitions, music, drama, martial arts and aerobics sessions and full participation in the Duke of Edinburgh's Award scheme. The current co-curricular programme comprises of the following activities:





Cosmetic making


Young Enterprise

Securities &


Table Tennis






Concert prep




Extension clubs

Coding Web Design Electronics

Instruments music


Horse Riding




Over weekends, the Head of Boarding & Pastoral care also operates a programme of trips for those wishing to take them. These include Cinema visits, Paintballing, Go-Karting as well as football league or rugby fixtures and visits to Alton Towers. Longer weekend cultural visits are also offered to cities such as Rome, Paris and Edinburgh.

The college has both football and basketball teams which play against other schools and local clubs. We have negotiated substantially reduced rates for both membership and instruction for students at the town’s squash and 18-hole golf club. Arrangements with the local leisure centre entitle students to a reduced entry fee for weight training and sauna, jacuzzi and steam room facilities. Our weekend programme of activities is very varied and includes go-karting, paintballing, cinema and theatre visits, horse-riding, cycling, visits to theme parks and trips to places of local historical or cultural significance. One of the highlights of the annual social calendar is the Summer Prize Giving Ceremony and Ball.
