Boarding update

The school has recently taken the decision, subject to planning permission, to increase our boarding provision at 13+ entry with the development of two new boarding houses, and to no longer offer boarding in Years 7 and 8. 

From September 2018 we no longer offer boarding at entry to Year 7. Please note that this will not affect the Continuity of Education Allowance for FCO personnel. Contact the Admissions office for more details.
