It is as important to us that our boarding students lead busy and balanced lives. Our focus is that a balance is found for each and every student which allows them to develop fully in terms of their academic pursuits, extracurricular interests and social life. Care and attention is given to every boarding student - the wellbeing of our students is of paramount importance. Our boarding students embody the core values of the School - aspiration, balance, compassion and independence.
Our purpose built boarding house can house up to 34 boarding students. This community is split evenly between Sixth Form students and pupils in Years 7-11. Shared bedrooms are spacious and have en suite bathrooms. The boarding house has a large lounge and games room, kitchen, laundry facility and a balcony with panoramic views.
