Upon joining the close-knit boarding community at Bredon School every boarder is assigned to a House, Year 11 and below to Tyndale House and Sixth Form pupils to Stable House.
Creating a home from home family atmosphere, year groups are fully integrated within the House, Houses are run by a team of resident staff ably supported by the Director of Boarding who also plays a key role in running both houses.
Tyndale House accommodates boys and girls from Year 4 to Year 11 on three different landings within the magnificent setting of the old house at Pull Court. Rooms range from single occupancy to seven-bed dorms, all with stunning views.
Mr Rob Starr, our Director of Boarding, alongside his wife Nicola and their dog Ronnie, nurture a warm, robust and encouraging family environment for all throughout Tyndale House to flourish socially and academically. There is no ceiling to what the boarders can achieve, the camaraderie and inclusive atmosphere allows all the boarders to reach their goals at a pace that works for them. Mr Starr and his team are firm believers that a clear sense of structure and responsibility within the house builds resilience, allowing each boarder to fulfil their huge potential.
Stable House is home to our Sixth Form pupils who board.
Stable House is a warm and thriving house, full of laughter, that offers our older boarders a real home from home after a busy Bredon school day. The house has three beautifully appointed common rooms for the girls and boys to socialise and enjoy each other’s company, and full kitchen facilities.
The pupils in Stable House have an independent living space and set of boundaries that allow them to grow in confidence and make them ready for the next step away from Bredon. Sixth Form pupils are allowed electronics overnight with parental permission and have the privilege to have town leave on a Friday evening if requested. Our Sixth Form pupils will also be shown how to use the laundry and will do their own laundry when needed.
Stable House is truly a boarding house that allows the individual to become independent, driven and socially responsible.
