A Flourishing Boarding Community

Boarding offers something different for every family and every student, but it always provides a safe and secure home from home. Boarding staff from different Houses outline what you can expect from boarding, what the benefits are, and how friendships are forged for life within this close community.

We’ll help you go further

Our schools are busy and vibrant places where pupils discover their passions, develop their skills and achieve more than they thought possible.

Progression is a driving force throughout; from learning to write in Nursery, developing the confidence to take to the stage, the skills to make the hockey team and achieving the grades needed to fulfil aspirations. Every challenge is an opportunity for growth, every attempt is a step forward. It is this continual progression and the sense of momentum it brings to our school community that inspired our ‘Go Further’ messaging.
