Named after:

Charlotte Brontë :Brontë was an English novelist and poet, born 21 April 1816 in Thornton, West Riding of Yorkshire and the eldest of the three Brontë sisters who survived into adulthood. Brontë’s experiences during her childhood and education appear to have been inspiration for some of her work and her most notable works are ‘Jane Eyre’ and ‘Villette’. Along with her sisters Emily and Anne, Charlotte self-financed the publication of a joint collection of poems under their pseudonyms Currer, Ellis and Acton Bell with these names preserving their intitals with Charlotte as Currer.

Student Response: As students, we were extremely interested in the Brontë sisters because they were a family and they worked together. They overcame the difficulties that women writers experienced at this point in history and even had to go under male pseudonyms at first. They lost their mum at a young age too, which some students can identify with and the challenges that this presents. They paved the way for other female writers. The Brontë sisters persevered to get their work published and overcame other adversities. The decision came from thorough student research on a number of British writers throughout history.

Motto:

'Believe in yourself, Every accomplishment starts with the decision to try'
