What are our aims to support our boarders' wellbeing, safeguarding and development?
- to provide an environment where they are cared for physically, emotionally and spiritually;
- to help every child and young person to mature and thrive as part of a caring and happy shared community.
- to provide as many enriching experiences as possible, to help them develop a balanced, fulfilled and distinct personality.
How do we do this?
- Every boarder has a dedicated houseparent working with no more than 15 boarders;
- Every houseparent is part of a wider team who is supported by the Deputy Head of Boarding and the Head of Boarding, thereby keeping the staff / boarder ratio even smaller;
- Every boarding day includes a wide range of additional activities using facilities both on and off the school site;
- Every boarder is supported each day with a supervised homework (prep) hour;
- Every boarder is given a voice and an opportunity to meet regularly with their houseparent in planning how they will build on their strengths and choose to be looked after in boarding time;
- Every boarder is supported to improve and develop their independence skills, both within the boarding routine and for their future lives.
