Nestling in the Lake District fells, the School offers boarders the chance to learn and live in a less hectic and more peaceful environment.


Senior boarders enjoy the independence of living away from home while being part of a large community of staff and pupils with who they share this unforgettable experience.


The weekend programme is packed with trips to the theatre, tours of the area, shopping expeditions, and leisure activities such as bowling and roller-blading. Boarders form strong friendships with day pupils who regularly join in with the weekend activity programme.


We have three boarding houses, set within our Lake District woodland campus and each House has its own distinctive feel. They each offer a home away from home experience, with comfortable lounges to relax with friends, widescreen TVs, and kitchens. There are quiet areas for prep, with academic tutors’ schedule each evening providing specialist subject tuition.

We aim to provide a safe and caring extended family environment where boarding pupils

can flourish academically, socially, and personally.

Our goal is to give our pupils the life skills and experiences necessary to prepare them for adulthood.
