Vacancies in Boarding for 2019

Vacancies in More House boarding from January 2019

 

We would like to alert you to the availability in some areas of boarding where a few vacancies may emerge from January 2019. If you have considered boarding for your son before, or might be considering it as an option in the future, now is a good time to get in touch to see what the possibilities might be. 

We can direct you to the Boarding part of the school website for further details, and our Boarding video entitled 'Transform' which gives a small flavour of what we offer; however, it is always good to find out for yourselves by visiting us, or speaking with the parents of our 100+ boarders who will give you so much more of what the residential provision has done for their sons. 

 

What does Boarding add?
 

For all years:

  • A reduction on time wasted through commuting - boarders are often less tired than some of their day boy friends because of this. More time to relax - more time to study!

  • A dedicated housemaster/mistress supporting your son’s development and growth

  • Development of social interaction, social confidence, friendship groups proven to last for years after leaving MHS

  • Growth in independence

  • Learning to live within a shared community with a strong sense of camaraderie

  • Immediate access to the on-site facilities

  • A rich programme of extra-curricular opportunities beyond the normal school day and after-school clubs

"George has had an incredible time while in boarding, he has enjoyed all the activities and trips. All the staff have been very attentive and caring and the experience has been one he has benefited from." (Year 11 parent)

"Due to his medical condition he tires easily and boarding obviously has helped alleviate this hugely with reducing travel times

and so again has helped improve his academic and musical achievements having more time to study and practise." (Year 9 parent)

"The structure and routine at school has also helped his organisational skills at home too." (Year 7 parent)

For GCSE years and 6th form  

All the above +

  • Preparation for living away from home; for example in preparation for university

  • Life-skills development, e.g. through evening cookery sessions, independent laundry, etc.

  • Leadership  opportunities for 6th formers - boarding prefects 

  • Modern accommodation and Sixth-form specific amenities 

  • Easy access to all revision classes, subject-support sessions, supervised independent study options

 

"Our son started boarding in year 7 and is now in the Lower 6th. The change we have seen in him has been astounding. In particular his confidence has soared, and his social skills have dramatically improved. I recall he once said to me that he had more good friends in the first week of boarding than he ever had after 7 years at his previous nursery/prep school." (Lower 6th parent)

"Thank you to all the boarding staff, especially, for caring for our son and treating him like a young adult,

encouraging him to take responsibility and risks, in a safe environment." (Year 11 parent)

 

How to seek more information?  Visit the 'Boarding' tab on the school website or Contact the Head of Boarding, Mr Fred Pennell directly, at fpennell@morehouseschool.co.uk, or through the school office.  Bespoke tours and consultations available.

We will be happy to show you around boarding and to organise a trial 'overnight assessment' for your son at no cost to yourselves. Should this assessment prove to go well from both perspectives, then things can progress from there.
