Queen Ethelburga's Boarding Facilities

Queen Ethelburga's Boarding Facilities

Our success in attracting increasing numbers of boys and girls to board at Queen Ethelburga's can best be explained by the fantastic luxury accommodation we offer and the surroundings in which we offer it.

Year on year we have seen our numbers rise. We have, without doubt, the best accommodation any independent school has to offer. And we keep getting better - we have just invested another £2 million to refurbish Benedict House, our accommodation for Middle School boys and girls, and part of that development included increasing our capacity.

For our boarders, each bedroom is en-suite with its own toilet and shower. There is also a direct dial in and out telephone and voice mail in each room, so keeping in touch with home is very easy and there is never the danger of a missed message.

Each room also has a timer-controlled 32 inch plasma TV with dvd player and gaming port. There is a mini kitchen with a fridge. There is wifi throughout the boarding houses and all bedrooms are air-conditioned.

But it is not just about the facilities but about the people with which our students spend their time. Our house parents have vast experience in helping children settle away from home. From lost luggage and homesickness to getting used to a strange place and making new friends, our boarding parents have seen it all and helped hundreds of children through it. We pride ourselves in giving our children a caring, safe and fun environment. We work hard to organise events every weekend and most nights, as long as the homework has been done!
