Bramley House


Bramley House was established in 1960 and named after Mr Charles Bramley who attended Bishops from 1875 to 1878. He was also President of the O.D. Union from 1941 until his death in 1956 at the age of 94.

 

Housemaster: Mrs Penny Graney

Assistant Housemaster: Mr Steve Mendes

 

Colour: Red

 

Motto: Non scholae sed vitae discimus (We learn not for school, but for life)

The motto evolved from the watchword or war-cry of the Bramley family. Today, the Bramley motto reflects the long-term benefits of an all round education, and is synonymous with the many and varied advantages of a Bishops education.

 

Mascot: Bear

The bear was thought to possess diplomacy equal to its great strength and it is the emblem of ferocity in the protection of family. A bear is also a symbol of healing and personal health, strength and bravery. The bear, in all that it represents, is thus a most appropriate choice of mascot for the House.
