An overview of our boarding facilities
We offer weekly boarding, full boarding and flexiboarding where possible from Year 7 onwards. We have three coeducational boarding houses split by age. All three offer a very homely environment with dedicated staff.
Hamilton House (known as HH)
HH, which is for boys and girls in Years 7, 8 and 9, is deliberately designed to be a home from home. Boys and girls sleep on different floors and share a common room and kitchen. With a capacity of just 28 boarders, HH has a family-like atmosphere where boarding staff really get to know each child.
Main House is home to students in their GCSE years. It is a larger house, with a capacity of 40 boarders. Boys and girls live in separate wings and, where possible, students in their second GCSE year have the option of their own room.
Roberts House, named after Paul Roberts, the school’s first headmaster, was purpose built in 2006 to provide living and studying space for all Sixth Form students. Boarders have their own study/bedroom while day students share one study room between two. The overall capacity of the house is 100, ideally split equally between girls and boys.
Occasional boarding can be organised where possible but space is limited and priority for rooms is given to weekly or full boarders.
