I started as a full boarder when I was in Year 5. It was a big step but I was welcomed by an amazing team. My dorm is cosy and I only share with one other boy and the boarding staff are like family.
I enjoy all aspects of the boarding experience but my favourite thing is definitely being around my friends all the time, it’s like an everlasting sleepover. I also don’t have to wake up as early as I would have to at home to get to school.
It’s great to have use of the school facilities during activity time, such as the outdoor pool when the weather is nice.
