FLEXI BOARDING

Flexi Boarding is a flexible system designed to meet the needs of busy parents. Unlike Full Boarders, Flexi Boarders stay for an extended day and return home in the evenings. 

Flexi Boarders can take full advantage of everything included in the Flexi Boarding charges:

  • Breakfast (Monday-Saturday)
  • Lunch (Monday-Friday)
  • Dinner (Monday-Friday)
  • Co-curricular activities 
  • 7-10 boarding nights per year
  • Prep (homework) time
  • Extended hours - pupils can stay from 7.30am until boarders in their year group go to bed

The extended day allows pupils to participate in the many after school activities on offer. Every term there are over 140 activities  designed to appeal to pupils of all ages and interests.

Flexi Boarders may arrive in school any time after 7.30 am to have a full breakfast. This is helpful for parents who need to leave early for work. Parents may collect their children any time up until boarders of the same age group go upstairs to prepare for bed.

Flexi Boarders are expected to stay overnight in a boarding house for 7 - 10 nights a year. We have created an online booking system and login details are sent to parents after the start of term. Subject to availability, parents are able to select their child's boarding nights.

The costs of the overnight stays are included in the Flexi Boarding charges. Flexi Boarding charges also cover breakfast, lunch and tea Mondays to Fridays and breakfast on Saturdays. Any Flexi Boarding pupil who stays for lunch or later after Saturday morning school will be charged according to the applied rates.

After lessons during the week, Flexi Boarders are expected to take full advantage of:

Activities 4.00 - 5.00 pm (some activities may take place later in the evening)
Tea 5.00 - 6.00 pm
Prep (Junior) 5.30 - 6.30 pm
Prep (Year 7 & 8) 6.00 - 7.00 pm
Prep (Year 9) 6.30 - 7.30 pm
Prep (Year 10 & 11) 6.30 - 8.00 pm


We believe that the needs of each pupil and family are unique. We offer a service that is flexible enough to meet almost all of these needs.
