Boarding offers something different for every pupil and family but it always provides a safe and secure home from home that is full of self-discovery opportunities.  Our full boarders enjoy complete social, cultural and academic integration into the life of the school, whilst our weekly boarders know that they have a comfortable and friendly base during their working week.

daily routine

There is plenty time for study, activities and free time. Boarders wake at 7am and go for breakfast before the start of school at 8.30am. The school day finishes at 4.00pm, an evening meal is served at 5.30pm with Prep commencing at 6.30pm. Boarders then have free time or organised activities and are then back in their House (times suitable for their age). At the weekend lessons take place on Saturday until 12 noon with evening activities also available after 6pm. On a Sunday there is essential free time alongside planned trips and activities.

Access To Facilities

We want boarders to enjoy their time, to feel supported in their studies and refreshed by their activities. During the week boarders have access to the swimming pool, sports pitches, library, tennis courts, sports hall, the art department, music department and the fully equipped gymnasium. The general grounds and Chapel are also accessible.


healthy meal times

From the boarders’ favourite meal of the day (breakfast!); through to our lunch with its wide variety of options; finishing with boarders’ supper; there is something to suit every taste. The school is committed to providing meals of the highest standard with a focus on providing homemade and well-balanced options, with ingredients locally sourced when possible.
