Senior School Boarding Houses

Rupert Brooke & School House are our Senior School boarding houses for students aged 13-18 years old (Year 9 to Sixth Form). Rupert Brooke is an al- girls boarding house, and School House is an all-boys boarding house.
These vibrant, warm and homely boarding houses enhance the academic progression, personal responsibility and leadership of the Senior School students within them. The communities are close-knit; deep friendships and expert pastoral care lie at the core, as we prepare these teenage boarding students for a more independent lifestyle at university and beyond.

A Typical Day for Senior School boarders

I became a border because a friend said how great it is. Boarding has helped me to get more studying done and I have definitely seen an improvement with my grades.
