Life in our Boarding Houses

Each boarding house has its own unique feel, and we hope that you will get an appreciation of this from the following pages.

During the School day, our boarders attend lessons and are indistinguishable from the rest of our School community. Beyond normal school hours – both in the evenings and at weekends – our boarders are kept busy! After the normal school day, once dinner has been eaten, we have significant time dedicated to undertaking homework – time we refer to as ‘prep’ – and have staff on hand to help provide guidance and advice.

"After prep, boarders are presented with a range of options. They might choose to swim in our on-site pool, play badminton or basketball in our Sports Centre, make use of our well-equipped gym, practise a musical instrument, or simply relax with friends."

At weekends, in addition to the normal weekday offering, we provide our boarders with a range of opportunities, including School sports fixtures on Saturdays and organised boarding excursions on Sundays. We aim to offer our boarders something special on Sundays, including new and exciting experiences, from trips to London and the seaside, to go-karting, ice-skating and the ever-popular gliding. There really is no excuse to not try something new!
