Welcome From The Director of Boarding

It’s my pleasure to tell you more about our excellent boarding facilities and ethos.

We have a thriving international boarding community of well over 100 boarders.

Boarding creates the opportunity for students of different ages and from different backgrounds and cultures to come together to live, work, and enjoy themselves and develop skills for life. They help and support one another, discover their talents in the range of activities on offer and form lifelong friendships.

As in all areas of the School, our boarding provision is underpinned by a strong pastoral support system. Pupils are cared for in a friendly and stimulating environment with an excellent range of facilities and opportunities at their fingertips.

We offer a wide range of activities and trips and encourage our pupils to take risks and challenge themselves to discover strengths, talents and skills which will further develop their independence, self-confidence, and determination.

My hope is for all members of the boarding community to seek to achieve the best that they can in all things, with guidance and encouragement from House staff, and thus enter the world beyond Ashford School as confident, educated and purposeful young adults.

Please take the opportunity to visit us in the Garden Of England to see for yourself what a wonderful place this is to live, learn and flourish.

"We value and celebrate diversity and individuality."
