Flexi-boarding is popular with students who would have a long journey into school and would like to break up the travelling during the week. It is also a great way of getting a taste of boarding life to see if your child likes boarding. With flexi-boarding, students can get the most out of the educational and co-curricular opportunities during the week, but can return home to other friends and family at the weekends. Flexi-boarders usually stay at the school for up to three nights per week. It is often excellent preparation prior to moving away to university.
