What We Offer - Secondary
Girls and Boys aged 11 to 16 years old
Boarding cultivates self-reliance, getting your child used to cooperating with others, making their own choices about day to day decisions and learning about organising one’s time. This makes it easier to make the transition from school to university, also equipping them with the independence they need to succeed when they leave education and go out to work.
When boarding, expert members of the school are available for longer than they would be for day school students. If a student has a problem with homework, for example, a subject expert will normally be on hand to help. Extracurricular activities are far more extensive than those on offer for day students. Students are kept busy in their downtime, which means they will have numerous opportunities to get involved in new hobbies, thereby developing additional skills valuable for later in life.
Boarding students will make strong friendships as they live together from a young age and in addition will become a support network for each other. Friends made at boarding schools will often become friends for life.
