Our Boarding Family
Boarding is very much a partnership between students, their families, teachers and boarding staff with each making an important contribution to this exceptional community of learning. We place great emphasis on ensuring our boarders are part of a tight-knit and caring community that values kindness and embraces a sense of family.
Our staff do not underestimate their responsibility in caring for your son and are committed to ensuring lines of communication are always open between home and school. Boarding staff supervise students out-of-school hours and provide pastoral and academic support. Our Director of Boarding and Heads of House live on site and are teachers at the School. They are in constant communication with the boarders’ mentors and class teachers to ensure they are accessing the necessary support.
Our staffing structure provides many avenues of support within an environment that provides high expectations, good supervision and consistency.
