Boarding Overview

Each boarding house is supported by a team of dedicated and trusting staff whose main priority is to create a nurturing environment where pupils feel comfortable, happy and inspired to aim high in everything they do.

Pupils can lean on our school nurses, our Chaplain, our school counsellors, and their House Parents and Matrons for support of any kind, whether it be pastoral, health, social or academic. Parents can contact the boarding staff at any time if they have any worries or concerns.

Students learn how to look after themselves, manage finances and prioritise time, without compromising their studies.

Although meals are still provided in the schools’ dining rooms, we encourage our students to use the house kitchens to make snacks and learn some basic cooking skills in readiness for university life and beyond.
