Expatriate and other Overseas Boarders

The Royal Alexandra and Albert School is a full time boarding school which has enrichment activities on Saturday mornings and consequently longer holidays.

Students are able to come to school at the start of term and remain in boarding until Half Term as we do not have compulsory exeat weekends. Most weekends about half of boarders remain in school, though this number does fluctuate. This pattern usually suits the needs of families based overseas, particularly given our proximity to Gatwick and Heathrow airports.

We do not offer accommodation during Half Term or any school holidays, and all boarders whose parents are based outside the UK must have a guardian resident in the UK.
