Part-time boarding

We are delighted to announce our new part-time boarding offer.

Part-time boarding is an addition to our current full time and flexi boarding offer and allows those living locally the option to board up to 2 prearranged nights per week- giving students the flexibility to board and enjoy time at home.

Our Part-time boarding offer enables students who live outside of the schools catchment area but within an approximate 30 minute drive/15 mile radius of the school the option to board up to two prearranged nights per week choosing either Monday/Tuesday or Wednesday/Thursday.

This might be especially useful for parents who are required to work long/unsociable hours or are required to work away from home.
