Boarding

 

 

The school is able to offer boarding for up to thirteen children per night from Monday to Thursday during term time. This facility is open to children from Year 3 upwards. The dormitories are located within the main school building above the Headmaster's private accommodation. Parents can choose either flexi-boarding or an overnight stay.

  • Flexi-boarding - The same night or nights booked on a regular basis
  • Overnight option - Any number of nights booked on an ad-hoc basis

Mr McChesney, Head of Boarding, is responsible for all bookings and care of the children after school hours.  From 2100 - 0700, the care of the children is the responsibility of the Headmaster's wife, Mrs Graham. Supper and breakfast are eaten in the dining room around a family table and are prepared by one of our chefs from Thomas Franks Catering.

This provides an excellent opportunity for your child to experience staying away from home in a safe and familiar environment and to prepare them for school residential trips.

Themed nights and outings offered over the past year include a Halloween and bonfire party, theatre and film trips, Lazer Quest, Top Golf, film night, ten pin bowling, pizza making and 'Girls Only' nights.

Popular evening activities include spotlight, twenty-twenty, football, cricket nets, hide and seek, shooting, dog walking, snooker, golf, board games, table tennis and Marco Polo (swimming pool).

  • Supervised homework periods
