In recent years we have seen a pleasing increase in the numbers of boys and girls living with us during term time. In the last seven years the number of children boarding with us has doubled.

Since I came here I am doing better in class, I have lots of friends and I'm having fun.

Our boarding is thought by many to be the very best and highest quality there is, in the UK and even Europe. For the past eighty years we have successfully cared for children living at the Collegiate.

Holly Fitzsimmons

It's easy to keep in touch with mum and dad because they ring twice a week and the house parents are great at looking after us all. I really like it when we get someone new joining us because it is exciting making new friends and showing them round the school and all the fantastic things we do on the weekend.

Year 6

Emmanual Rominiyi

I love the excellent sports pitches and the different games that we play. I would really like to be a boarder so that I can spend even more time on campus!

Year 6

Patrick Kelly - enjoys riding in the equestrian centre and finds the classwork really fun:

The lessons aren't boring at all. The teachers don't just stand there and tell you things for a long time while you sit there. We tend to be really active in class, making things, asking questions and getting things to help understand.

Year 6

Abigail Taylor

I have lots of friends at Queen Ethelburga's and I particularly like being in King's Magna because you have more freedom and independence than when we were in Chapter House.

Year 7

Douglas Sword

We have more independence in King's Magna and our facilities are amazing. We have dedicated classrooms for each subject. We've also now got the Woodlands Playground which is absolutely brilliant. If I had to write down all the things I love about King's Magna I would be here for years!

Year 7

Ruth Hartley-Roberts

The best thing about King's Magna is that all the teachers understand you. They help you if you are stuck. If you don't comprehend something you just need to ask and they will help.

Year 7

Maeve Collins

Everybody is friendly and makes you feel welcome. You can never be lonely because there is always somebody around to keep you company. Every year the Drama department puts on a King's Magna production. It is a lot of hard work but there it is also a lot of fun. I am very proud to be part of this school

Year 8

Henry Long

King's Magna has been helping children in many countries with our charity fund-raising and last year our school raised more than £12,000. It just shows what a caring group of people we are. I am a boarder and our activities over the weekend are great. The house parents are funny and make me feel like I am at home.

Year 8

Matthew Hampson

I like King's Magna because we do lots of sports and we play against other schools. My favourite bit is playing rugby and boarding because we do lots of great activities on and off site. Having been in this school for two years I haven't experienced any homesickness because all of my house parents have been loving and friendly and like a second family because I know them so well.

Year 8

Will Blackmore

The best thing about King's Magna is the opportunities – they range from fencing to Maths Mania and Choir. Secondly the school starts to give you more freedom and independence so you are ready for the journey to adulthood.

Year 6

Lily Woodman

I like lots of things in King's Magna but I will try and only list the top five. Number one is independence because you have got two playgrounds, a skate park and the fountain. Secondly the good range of clubs like trampolining, gymnastics and drama. I also like the lessons because they are more challenging and fun. The fourth thing is the library which has lots of books to choose from. Last but not least I like my class because it is quite small so the teacher can come to you if you are stuck.

Year 6

Kieran Pryce-Jones

I like the balance in King's Magna of playing and learning. I like the freedom, the facilities and the friendships.
