Boarding Taster Days

Boarding places are available for boys and girls from ages 8 to 18 (Years 3 to 13). The best way to experience the benefits of boarding are to try it our for a night or two. Candidates are paired with a student their own age to attend lessons with and share a room. All Boarding Taster students join in the daily activities, lessons and meal times to become familiar with the routine.


We welcome families to attend school events to get a feel for the atmosphere. There is a wide choice of plays, concerts, and sporting fixtures which can be found in the school calendar.
