Our Boarding Team brings a wealth of experience, knowledge and expertise to their roles. Their collective goal is to foster a sense of community, inclusiveness, and personal development within the boarding programme. All boarding staff are actively involved in the school as teachers, sports coaches or past pupils which all leads to a more 'homely' experience for all students.  They strive to create a home away from home, where students feel comfortable, safe, and encouraged to achieve their fullest potential.
