About the website

This website is for the Alumni of what was Bretton Hall educational establishment. The Hall closed in 2007 and at present, all enquirers about the College will be dealt with by Leeds University.
This website is for everyone who has been touched and inspired by the creative powerhouse that was Bretton Hall and the website was launched after the ‘final’ big reunion of May 2007. 

Please help in its construction by sending us stories, photos and memories – get in touch via the Contacts page.
