Year 11 Boys Boarding

Welcome to Year 11 Boys Boarding

Senior boys consist of 2 boarding houses. Year 10 boys and year 11 boys. The houses have International students mixing with English students alike. Each house has their own team of staff catering to their pastoral needs and endeavour to keep the boys happy, and fulfilled in their everyday situations.

The students share their rooms with 1 or 2 other boys and work together to keep them tidy and a happy environment.

During the time spent in senior boys, the students grow in confidence and independence. Learning how to take more responsibilities for their own choices and decisions. The staff continually support and help them through these times.

Evenings and weekends can find staff offering their skills in helping the boys cook, bake, playing pool or supporting the boys on the rugby, basketball and football pitches.

The students are never left unsupervised in the boarding house. The staff live in flats within the boarding house and someone is always on emergency call throughout the night.
