Named after Lady Brabourne, governor, benefactor, and parent at Ashford School, Brabourne House sits on the main School site, adjacent to the swimming pool and a few steps from the Refectory.
It is a purpose-built House with capacity for 63 girls. There are 47 rooms, the majority of which have en-suite facilities. All the rooms on top floor of the House were refurbished in December 2019.
The House has two common rooms, two kitchens, several cosy seating areas distributed around the house, a front yard and a back garden as well as a laundry room with washing machines and dryers. In the common rooms we have two large screen TVs, computers, a large football table, an air hockey table, and a piano as well as other musical instruments.
A secure and reliable wifi internet connection is available throughout the House, both to the Microsoft Surface devices provided by the School, but also for the boarders’ own devices.
We hold regular house events in our common rooms, from Pizza & Movie Nights and Hot Chocolate Evenings to our famous “Halloween Party”. Brabourne is the undisputed winner of the Ashford School Gingerbread House competition.
The staff are engaged, empathetic and truly care about the girls and their wellbeing. This is key to generating the nurturing environment we pride ourselves on. We aim to create a home for our girls and a sense of community and trust.
