Brooke House prep school

It’s now the only private school in Market Harborough – but 50 years ago it was a preparatory school.

Pictured above are youngsters from Brooke House, off Leicester Road, on a visit to Kettering where they were given a tour of Northamptonshire Newspapers Ltd, where the Mail was then printed each week.

They are pictured in the stereo department and with them is headmaster Charles Lister.

The picture was first published in the Mail on March 25, 1965.

Brooke House College, now a destination for mainly international boarding students from ages 12-22, became a college in 1967.
