Bruce

Housemaster, Jack Hoskins with his family

I believe that creating a warm, caring atmosphere is paramount for the success of the individual - if a boy is happy in the environment in which he lives, this will spill over into other areas. With this in mind, I hope that each and every boy entering Bruce House thirsts to, in the immortalised words of Alfred Lord Tennyson, “drink life to the lees”; have new experiences in new fields - whether that be attending a Sixth Form Lecture, involvement in the Duke of Edinburgh Award, joining the School choir, taking part in the Bruce House Carol Concert, auditioning for a School musical or the annual Bruce House Cabaret or trying their hand at a sport for the first time.

‘Bruce Boys’ come from many different nationalities and cultures with wide-ranging interests and talents; they are an eclectic mix of sportsmen, musicians, thespians and academics but, more importantly, Bruce boys are fun-loving individuals who genuinely look out for, and care for, the wellbeing of others. In this diverse environment, I hope the young men leaving Bruce House will do so empowered with mutual respect for others. I also firmly believe that “When an individual takes care of the little things, the big things fall into place”; in doing so I trust the boys will inherit key life skills of self-discipline, self-motivation and self-respect.

In conclusion, alongside the team of Tutors, our Matron the multi-talented Mrs Millard, my wife Emily, two children, Esme and Ivo, and our dogs, Gus, Bunty and Shadow, I intend Bruce to be an extension of our own family and sincerely hope the boys will follow my ‘Open Door’ policy, in coming to chat to with me about anything which might be of concern, no matter how trivial the matter might seem.

Mr Jack Hoskins, Housemaster
