Kings Magna Boys Year 9

The Year 9 Kings Magna Boys boarders are located in the Benedict boarding house, on their own floors. This allows them to have their own space as they further mature and begin to focus more on studying. Due to the structure of Benedict House each room is unique which gives it a nice ‘homely’ feel. Nevertheless all rooms are fitted with the same modern facilities including ample desk space, en suite bathroom facilities, a fridge and a flat screen television in every bedroom. There is a maximum of three students to a bedroom in the house. The house also has two large common rooms – one on each floor. The common rooms are fitted with large flat screen televisions, computers, milk dispensers, and lots of comfy sofas. Both common rooms are also fitted washing and drying facilities which the students can use, supervised by staff, should they wish to do their own laundry. As the students in Year 9 are the oldest in Kings Magna we look to them to maintain high standards and be good role models for the younger students in the school.
