Girls and boys board in separate accommodation, under the care of specialist staff who understand their needs.
White House (extended in 2016) is home to all Middle School boy boarders, who are under the care of a Head of House, Deputy Head of House and a Housemother, with assistance of teaching and duty staff. Boys are accommodated in dormitories of between four and eight boys, with communal lounge areas and a wireless internet network.
Senior boy boarders – Years 9-12 – are accommodated in Abbott, Croft or Tyrrell house. In Senior School, boarders have their own study and bedroom space in shared dormitories of between three or four boys (Years 9-10), twin share (Year 11) and all Year 12 boarders have their own room, including study and a king single bed. All houses are staffed by a Head of House who is a member of teaching staff, a Deputy, a Housemother, and a number of residential and duty staff.
Also living in the safe, modern environment are three residential staff, who along with the Head of House and Deputy Head of House, have a keen interest in the happiness and welfare of the girls in their care. In time, Middle School girl boarders will revert to Dangar Moyes, the previous home of girl boarders, thus replicating the boarding structure for boys.
From rising time until lights out, the life of a boarder is an active and fulfilling one, with age-appropriate routines designed to help them flourish academically, physically, socially and spiritually. Parents of current boarders can find out more about what’s happening in their child’s house in the Parent Portal section of the website.
