Our boarding community is small and friendly and approximately one quarter of our pupils board. Our boarders live in the main school building or in the nearby Gorsefield House, and therefore have easy access to the library, the dining hall, the sixth form centre and both IT and recreational facilities. Boys and girls live in separate areas of the school, and each have resident staff members overseeing their boarding environment. A range of room sizes is available, from a large dormitory subdivided into cubicles, which proves popular with the younger boys, to rooms of four and two beds, with en-suite facilities. Sixth Formers all live in either double or single rooms.
School House, which occupies a wing of the fine old school building, has recently been refurbished to a high standard and offers comfortable and characterful accommodation for boys and girls aged 11 to 14. At this age it is good for children to socialise and they enjoy the social aspects of communal living, so they sleep in dormitories and share a common room, TV room and games room. Beyond the boarding house, the academic and recreational facilities of the school are immediately to hand.
