Children may start boarding from the age of nine through one of our three contemporary boarding options. A number of trial nights are held throughout the year for children to get a feel for boarding in Hamilton House, our dedicated Prep Boarding House.

Our committed and caring team are all familiar faces for our boarding children. With their encouragement, children feel at home and contribute to house life through joining in, enjoying being with their friends, eating and sleeping well and learning to manage and organise themselves. All alongside working hard and making the most of all that is on offer.

Boarding Options:

  • Flexi: 1-4 nights
  • Weekly: 5 nights
  • Full: 7 nights

Boarding is very popular and does need to be booked in advance and committed to on a termly basis. However, it may be possible to board on the occasional night to support family commitments, so please do contact the boarding team if required.
