At Brooke House we take the responsibility of educating children very seriously, and strive consistently to ensure that our students maximise their potential in securing the best possible future they can. We believe that the cornerstone of success is a high-quality academic delivery combined with a learning environment in which students are challenged and also supported. Our expectations are high yet appropriately managed and a focus is placed on preparing students for the challenges of life and not just for examinations. In this regard whilst analytical skills and the ability to communicate effectively are fostered in the classroom a spirit of independence and endeavour is cultivated outside it through a broad curriculum. The college in recent years has developed in to a centre of sporting excellence – its Football Academy now competes in the top-flight of secondary level football and its Motorsports Academy draws interest from all over the globe. The college evaluates itself by its ability to deliver its students ambitions, whether they be a career in professional sport, entering a profession, a life in academia or an opportunity in entrepreneurship.
Brooke House aims to provide a safe and tolerant co-educational environment which allows individual expression and development. Over the college’s 50 year history we have welcomed students’ from all corners of the world and strived to make sure that the experience of gaining an education away from home is not too daunting. We have been privileged to see different cultures and customs merging in a spirit of friendly competition. The college places a particular emphasis on its boarding provision and hopes that a parent residing in Market Harborough would still wish to enrol their child as a boarder on account of the enriching pastoral experience available within the college walls.
The world’s commercial, political and social landscape seems to change ever more quickly. Students can now undertake university courses in subject areas that had not been invented when I was an undergraduate! However, we believe that through combining traditional values with modern thinking our students will matriculate with grounds for great optimism about their futures. We believe that we what we do here in Leicestershire is a little bit special – please do come and see for yourselves – you will be very welcome.
