Houses - Brandon
Brandon House’s designated colour is blue.
Head of House: Miss Brooks
“Last year we were awarded second place in the House Championships - this year we are aiming for first!
Brandon House is an ambitious and determined House who are always striving for the best. Our Swimming Gala and Sports Day teams last year were a credit to us, as well as those students that came to support and cheer their teams on.
Our charity this year is Alzheimer's charity and our charity team (along side our Form Charity Captains) have many events planned to raise as much money for this worthwhile cause!”

If you have any ideas for more House events, please inform Miss Brooks or one of your House captains.
Brandon House is named after Sir William Brandon (1448 – 1485). William Brandon married Elizabeth Bruyn, from South Ockendon and their son, Charles Brandon, later became the first Duke of Suffolk.
As Henry Tudor’s standard-bearer, William was killed Battle of Bosworth Field in 1485 by King Richard III himself.
The tide of battle turned however and Henry Tudor defeated Richard III to become Henry VII of England and Wales, ending the Wars of the Roses.
The defeated King Richard's was buried by monks in a Friary in Leicester, but his remains were discovered as the ‘King in the Car Park’ in 2013.
