Thomas House is named after Brian Llewellyn Thomas, who was Bredon’s first Director of Studies when Bredon opened in 1962. Mr Thomas had been in Lt-Col Sharp’s regiment and served alongside him in Malaya (now Malaysia) but had left the army several years before and gone into teaching. As L-Col Sharp approached retirement, Thomas became Headmaster of Bredon School in the autumn of 1977.
