The Head of Girl’s Boarding works across the school with key staff to ensure academic, residential, co-curricular and health and wellbeing programs are appropriate to girls, and that they feel welcome and nurtured in a safe, caring, inclusive and positive environment. A healthy range of meals served in the school’s main dining room, evening supper in House, and the constant availability of fresh fruit, provide a nourishing and balanced diet.
Outside of school hours, all boarders have access to the school’s excellent facilities, including the heated indoor swimming pool, tennis courts, gym, and fitness centre. Boarders can take town leave during the week when they do not have other commitments. While there is no set number of weekend exeats per term for boarders, all boarders are expected to honour their school and sporting commitments, and some weekends are closed due to specific activities. Leave can be organised with their Head of House. A well-appointed Medical Centre is staffed by qualified nursing sisters who are on duty 24 hours a day, seven days a week, and the school doctor also visits three mornings a week. Our nursing staff, and the school doctor have had extensive experience administering to the medical needs of girls.
