A Note on George Bradley

George Bradley was a charismatic leader and a teacher of the highest quality. When Lord Tennyson sent his son, Hallam, to the College in 1866, he was quoted as saying, “I sent my son to Bradley rather than to Marlborough!”

By the time Bradley left Marlborough in 1870 to become Master of University College Oxford, he had ensured that Marlborough`s reputation both for scholarship and as a progressive school was universally acknowledged and admired.

George Bradley's initials may be seen high up on the north gable, while, a little below these and on the same wall is an angel which was moved from the Old Chapel when it was demolished in 1884.
