House motto: in varietate concordia (United in Diversity)
WHAT’S IT LIKE IN BROOK COURT?
Brook Court is one of two boys’ boarding houses, accommodating boys from 4th Form all the way to Upper Sixth. The house is located on the edge of the school campus giving the boys a sensation of going home and allows for some escape from the busy school life. The house motto, “United in Diversity”, truly depicts the community of Brook Court. From Thailand via the UK to the USA, we do a pretty good job of spanning the globe whilst retaining the tradition British values of a boarding house. As sixth formers we do our best to mingle with lower years to ensure that they settle easily at the school and feel able to ask for help in any problems that they may be having. Brook Court strives to allow boys to thrive in whatever talents they have whether its sport, music or even gaming. The wide range of backgrounds and skills does not, however, impede upon the ability to come together as a group for house events or even simply playing football in the evenings, watching Netflix or Sky Movies as a House or table tennis at break-time. The house is a hub for the boys during the school day, as they return at break and lunchtime to get their books and to relax. My personal experience of life in Brook Court is certainly something I’d recommend to others. I’ve been supported by staff and pupils from the day I joined. From a shy and scared Fourth Former looking at hundreds of unfamiliar faces to being Head of House, I have always seen Brook Court as the most friendly house and, of course, the best! (but I am biased).
