Boarding Life

The thriving boarding community offers students the chance to enjoy all the opportunities of school life to the full. Boarders enjoy readily available educational, social and sporting facilities throughout the week and at weekends. It is also ideal option for students who live too far away to commute on a daily basis but who wish to return home at weekends as there is no Saturday school.

Our boarding students come from all over the world creating a rich and culturally diverse student community – friendships are forged here which broaden horizons and last a lifetime.

Ultimate responsibility for the welfare of all students rests with the Headmaster who lives on site during term time.

Day to day pastoral care is provided by our team of caring and committed resident boarding staff under the Head of Boarding whose role is to give all students a warm welcome and to guide, support, encourage and advise students on any issues that may arise as they integrate into boarding life.

The boarding staff also organise activities in the evenings and at weekends for students to make the most of school life.  The Boarders’ Forum meets regularly to discuss ideas for development and improvements in all aspects of boarding life.
