From the Head of House
"Bruce has been a very special place for me over the past five years and there is no doubt that being a ‘Brucite’ has played an important part in shaping me as a person. I have formed great friendships and have had experiences that will stay with me forever.
Bruce embodies many of the great Stoic traditions, as well as having some of our own. The key principles which underpin the Bruce ethos are being supportive, competitive, friendly and united. The moment I entered Bruce as a 13 year old, I grasped an immediate sense of togetherness and it has been a privilege to be part of this.
In Bruce we pride ourselves on having relationships with boys across the whole House, we encourage interaction between years. Over the last two years this has been further helped with the introduction of a new internal ‘Family’ system, which is a great way to get to build social bonds between year groups.
All the varied successes we enjoy in Bruce are made possible due to the foundations which underpin the culture we have in House. These have been built by a Housemaster who drives the House forward, a wonderful Matron and a strong and supportive Tutor team. They encourage us all to seize the huge number of opportunities that Stowe offers."
