Boarders are encouraged to take a full and active part in the life of the community. The boarding houses are all in close proximity, with the girls' boarding house a short stroll across the sports field. This allows the boarders to share their facilities and also for each boarding house to maintain its own individual character, led by the houseparents.
Head of Boarding Mrs Susan Roberts-Key has had many years experience as a Houseparent and is also Head of Mathematics.
