Our boarding houses accommodate all our international school students during their studies here. They are conveniently located on campus or within easy walking distance.
Our dedicated residential house staff are responsible for the well-being of students 24 hours a day. As the first international boarding school of its kind in the UK, we have always prided ourselves on one of the best staff to student ratios in the world with large numbers of dedicated full-time house staff.
This ensures that we are able to care for the individual needs of all students, particularly in the first few weeks when some may feel a little homesick. It also allows us to offer a wide variety of sports, activities and excursions to keep students active and happy.
Medical care is always available should it be needed with our doctor available every morning.
Girls and boys live in separate boarding houses and most have a single or double bedroom, with a few junior girls being allocated a four-bedded room. Where rooms are shared, we aim to ensure room mates speak different languages to encourage communication in English at all times. All students have a comfortable bed, a desk for study and a secure locker.
All boarding houses have WiFi and common rooms with TVs, DVD players and games consoles, allowing students to relax with friends during evenings and weekends. Desktop computers are also available with access to printers.
Our boarding houses also have small kitchens where students can make drinks and snacks.
