Full boarding gives students a chance to develop confidence, social skills, independence, self-motivation and cultural awareness. As full boarders, children stay at the school twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week. Full boarders have around the clock access to facilities and co-curricular opportunities. The full boarding environment encourages a firm sense of community and helps to develop skills and talents for life whilst forming friendships and bonds that will last a lifetime. Full boarding appeals particularly to those who live a fair distance from their chosen school and to students living overseas.
