Sharp House is named after Bredon School’s Co-founder and first Headmaster, Lt-Col Sharp, who, along with Hugh Jarrett, established Bredon School as a boys boarding school in 1962. When the school opened its doors in the September of this year, it did so with 17 pupils and five resident members of staff. Lt-Col Sharp firmly believed that “the journey is as important as the destination” – and this is still very much at the core of Bredon’s ethos today.
