Welcome to the Glaisdale Unit

Glaisdale is the residential unit for the senior boys within school. The unit consists of up to ten residential boys ranging from Years 10 to 11, as well as an ever changing number of non-residential boys who are also attached to the unit. Here, Mr Sutton is the unit leader, supported by Miss Bold, Mr Craig, and Mr Poole.

Glaisdale promotes a relaxed atmosphere which is designed to encourage all boys to develop self-awareness, responsibility and independence in preparation for them leaving. This is supported by our home-school transition program in Years 10 and 11.

Glaisdale Unit Staff

Mr Sutton - Leading Residential Childcare Officer

My name is Mr Sutton and I have been working at Brompton Hall School for 7 years. In the past I have worked as a chef in the Royal Navy, a postman and been a personal trainer in a gym. I have a keen interest in rugby and have a season ticket watching the mighty black and whites of Hull FC. I also like football and support Leeds United much to the dislike of Mr Shannon who once passed Liverpool on a trip to Chester Zoo and thought 'I'll support them'. My greatest sporting achievement was captaining my Rugby team to a national final played at Twickenham. I like to think I have seen some things in my time, and I love helping the boys and passing on my experiences to them.

Mr Poole - Residential Childcare Officer

My name is Mr Poole and I hail from County Wexford in Eire (Ireland). I’ve been working at Brompton Hall School for 5 years now. My hobbies include collecting measuring tapes and watching and playing rugby. On weekends I really enjoy finding a bargain at the many car boots and markets North Yorkshire has on offer. The teams I barrack for include Leinster Rugby, Ireland (Rugby and Association football). I have a passion for woodwork and enjoy nothing more than using reclaimed wood to build furniture.    

Miss Bold – Residential Childcare Officer

I am Miss Bold and I have been working on Glaisdale unit for 4 months however I have worked in school as a teaching assistant with the boys from Glaisdale for 2 years. In my free time I enjoy cooking and baking and being creative. I am passionate about keeping fit (I said I am passionate I did not say I was any good) and eating healthy and therefore enjoy incorporating this into the curriculum. I have previously worked abroad in Spain for a season, in a post office and finally found myself working here at Brompton Hall with this being the best career I have had to date.

Mr Craig - Residential Childcare Officer
We are committed to a whole school approach towards mental health and wellbeing and many of our activities are designed to support this.
