Boarding life

Dr Jones (Director of Boarding) and Ms Harding (Head of Girls’ Boarding) oversee all aspects of boarding life. They support other houseparents and the school matrons who also have an extremely important pastoral role within the boarding community, looking after the practical needs of all pupils. The wellbeing and happiness of boarders is fundamental and at the forefront of all that we do.

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 Form boarders live in either double or single rooms.

School House is a vibrant and diverse, family community. Under the care of Houseparent, Miss Masters and Deputy, Mr Colquhoun, School House offers comfortable and distinctive accommodation for boys and girls from Year 6 to year 8.

School House occupies a wing of the old school building and has recently been refurbished to an extremely high standard. At this age children enjoy the communal aspects of collective living, so they sleep in dormitories and share a common room, TV room and games room.
