Our Founding Sponsors

de Capell Brooke Family

Hugh de Capell Brooke
Alexander de Capell Brooke

Hugh de Capell Brooke was the founding sponsor of Brooke City Technology College. It was Hugh's determination, vision and passion that was the driving force in bringing high quality, innovative state-funded education to Corby and the surrounding area.

Hugh served as Chairman of the Trustees of the College for many years and took an active interest in the development of Brooke Weston Trust as a multi-academy trust. Today, the Trust continues to benefit from the ongoing support of the de Capell Brooke family and the active involvement of Hugh's son, Alexander de Capell Brooke, as Director of the Trust Board.
