Jarrett House is named after Bredon School’s Co-founder, Hugh Jarrett, who, along with Lt-Col Sharp, established Bredon School as a boys boarding school in 1962. Mr Jarrett was Headmaster of Cotsbrook Hall Preparatory School in Shropshire when he spotted a niche in the market – there was very little provision for boys who had failed the Common Entrance exam. Jarrett was determined to fill this gap and in early 1962, he finally persuaded the Sharp family to establish Bredon School with him.
Housemaster: Miss Eaton
As an experienced Pastoral, Behaviour, Safeguarding and Boarding House lead, with a range of experiences and responsibilities across a number of schools over the past 17 years, Miss Eaton brings a wealth of knowledge and experience to this role.
Miss Eaton feels that education is best undertaken within an atmosphere based around trust, respect, and the recognition of achievements and rewards. A positive culture with a high level of expectations is a key factor of a constructive learning environment. It is imperative that clear communication and mutual respect for everyone is visibly present and consistent. Miss Eaton believes promoting students’ personal and social development and fostering positive attitudes will undoubtedly bring excellent results academically, socially, emotionally and/or collectively. Education should not be restricted to the classroom and time should be spent getting to know and understand everybody in our care.
The Dalai Lama eloquently advocates the belief; “When you talk, you are only repeating what you already know. But if you listen, you may learn something new.” Miss Eaton unequivocally believes that taking the time to fully understand a person’s needs increases the likelihood of a positive outcome. Miss Eaton has applied this philosophy throughout her career and it is at the heart of everything she does.
