Our boarding houses are warm, family orientated and homely. Boarders are divided up according to year groups, with the objective of increasing personal independence and co-operation and appreciation of others.
Boarding houses - Main House and The Stables each has its own residential houseparent who is responsible for the individual needs and welfare of the boarders in their care. The Deputy Head of Boarding lives on site and is also the overnight Designated Safeguarding Lead. Both the Head and Deputy Head of Boarding are available throughout the school day to support boarders and the transition in to the learning environment. Daily handover meetings are held with all boarding staff in the morning and evening and communicated with school staff.
The dormitories are homely, all recently decorated with boarders being encouraged to personalise their rooms. In each boarding house there is a common room with a flat screen TV, DVDs, CDs, mini kitchen in which to make snacks and hot drinks and a place to chill out with friends. There is also a games room and library available for use by students.
We can usually accommodate flexi boarders by arrangement - please ask for further details.
All boarders benefit from an extensive after school activities programme and opportunities to develop independence and communication skills.
