Bradford (Boarding, Boys)
Senior Boys aged 14 to 18 years.
Bradford House is your ‘home from home’. It is important that everybody knows this that comes into contact with the house. Feeling looked after, cared for and known is so important to the Houseparents, tutors and Pastoral Assistant. We want the same outlook for the boys - looking out for each other, knowing each other and supporting one another at all times.
The informal school motto being, ‘Work Hard, Play Hard and Serve Well’, we do try and follow these principles in Bradford House. There are various different ways this can be achieved, but it is a good starting point for the outlook of the house. Perhaps an important aspect of living together is supporting each other and ‘serving’ each other in many different contexts.
We want to have a culture of respect also. Ensuring we respect each other, the house, the staff and all those we come into contact with, will lead to a happy house.
We also have a Personal Best culture within the house. It goes without saying that we want the boys to try their best academically, but we also want everyone to get involved in house life, trying everything and getting the most out of the boarding experience. Doing the best you can and giving your all is all we can ask.
Mr and Mrs Martin (Houseparents at Bradford House) and their children.
