Life as a Boarder brings new exciting challenges such as sharing your life and home with 45 people.
This is an experience like no other. Learning to live with students who may speak multiple languages, sharing meals in a huge dining room that is full of life and excitement, eating food you may not have experienced before, developing close friendships with students within all year groups, all add to the unique fun of the boarding experience.
Our older girls take on the role of big sister to the younger girls, mentoring them, assisting them academically, socially and emotionally. You will often see the girls mixing and hanging out across year groups. Our Boarding House is a home and a great place to grow up.
Independence and confident develops by slowly increasing freedoms and responsibilities. Learning to organise your own life in every aspect, managing your school timetable, organizing your own space, doing your own washing and ironing, organising yourself for the school day, balancing your extracurricular with your academic life, learning to communicate information to your parents clearly regarding weekend leave is all part of the learning experience. And the girls love it!
