Bromsgrove School’s Sixth Form Boarding House was officially re-opened, after twelve months of refurbishment, in the presence of Janice Boswell, Bromsgrove District Councillor and Robin Shaw, Vice-Chairman of the Housman Society last weekend.
The Worcester Road School was delighted to welcome back over 70 former pupils, current and former staff and friends of the School to the re-opening lunch at Housman Hall. The Headmaster, Peter Clague welcomed guests to the newly refurbished House and Head Girl, Emily Collie, who won the Housman Society Cup in 2013, read the Housman Verse. After lunch, current pupils showed guests around the House including the newly built bedroom wings and landscaped grounds.
Named after Poet and former Bromsgrove School pupil A. E. Housman, who lived in the house during the 1860s, Housman Hall is now home to over 100 Sixth Form boarders from the UK and around the world.
