Headmaster's Welcome

Choosing a school is not easy and no prospectus can adequately convey its quality and atmosphere. However, I hope this Prospectus will give you a feel for our ethos and the breadth of education at Brockhurst and Marlston House Schools. We are essentially family schools and have been in existence for over a hundred and thirty years.

Our model of education aims to combine the best features of the single sex and co-educational systems and offers you a unique choice of education which we believe best enables boys and girls to achieve their potential and to develop their self-confidence.

In addition, we have combined the finest traditions of private schooling with online learning in a ground breaking way. This has enabled us to bring enormous benefits to our children and parents.

I hope you will come and visit us and see how we achieve these objectives. It will give you an opportunity to see the boys and girls flourishing in a wonderful environment and we shall make you most welcome.

Welcome to Brockhurst

We often hear from Old Brocks that they remember their time here with great affection and happiness. The sense of freedom and breadth of opportunity are two of the key ingredients that made their prep school experience so special. My own experience of teaching at a boys’ prep school in South Africa and an all boys’ boarding school in Scotland has shown me that boys especially enjoy a challenge both in and outside the classroom. Being a schoolmaster in a traditional country prep school such as ours is a privilege and it is my aim to ensure that every boy is given the support and encouragement, they need to make the most of the many opportunities we have to offer and to become the best they can be.

We look forward to welcoming you to Brockhurst for a visit.
