From the Head of House
“Choosing Bruce as my house for the next five years of my life was an important decision, If I could go back five years I would pick Bruce every time. I have full confidence that being a ‘Brucite’ has played an important part in shaping me as a person. Bruce stands under the key principles of being supportive, competitive, friendly and united. These four traits can be seen in every individual in Bruce. The people I have lived with, made friendships with and the memories I have created with them will last a lifetime.
Around school Bruce is widely known as a very friendly house, friendships among the whole house are an important part of our daily lives. A specialty of Bruce is our Family system, which has split the house up into families. This helps us to develop support from the seniors to the juniors. This year we have a very strong prefect team that have been able to give support throughout the house, Yaroslav (our Third form prefect) has done an excellent job at helping our thirds settle in, who have all been a great addition to the house. All the varied successes we enjoy in Bruce are made possible due to the foundations, which underpin the culture we have in House. These wonderful characteristics that are a Brucite and friendly living environment would not be possible with out Mr Sutton, a house master who drives the house forward, our amazing Matron and our supportive tutor team. They encourage each and everyone of us to seize all the opportunities Stowe has to offer and make us into the men that we are today, for that I am very grateful.”
