Boarding at the Prep

A vibrant boarding community underpins everything we aim to achieve at the Prep. We want our boarding to be a fabulous and fun experience for all the children in our care. We want them to feel at home, feel part of the school and feel a strong sense of belonging and community. From boarding at the school, we want our children to grow life-long friendships and memories they will cherish forever. We also want them to feel they are the lucky ones with all that is laid on for them from day to day, week to week, term to term. 

With full, weekly and flexible boarders, we aim to create a caring and trusting boarding community that welcomes all. Cherished and listened to, our boarders are cared for in a family setting.    

With over fifty boarders occupying the main house of the school, our boarding community enjoy all the benefits of living in such a beautiful setting. They are well cared for by our team of residential staff, matrons and houseparents. Blessed with ample facilities, our boarders embrace all that is around them from the river, the playing fields, cricket nets, tennis court, the farm, the outdoor swimming pool, adventure playground, the all-weather pitch and Sports Hall. A pool table, table tennis and other classic pastimes, our boarders are quite deliberately fed a diet of traditional and contemporary activities whilst promoting high standards of manners and socialisation.  Our all-inclusive ethos give tremendous value to the education our boarders receive.
