Lower School Boarding

Ridley’s ten boarding houses are unique, warm, and inviting communities within the school.

Junior boarding is available to Lower School students in Grades 5 through Grade 8 in Burgoyne House. Smaller than the Upper School residences, Burgoyne House has a structured and home-like atmosphere for younger students — the Burgoyne Bears. Living in Burgoyne House is like being part of a family with a dozen or more brothers and sisters. Students from Canada and around the world share their cultural heritage and build lasting friendships while learning and living together in the Lower School.

Burgoyne House is led by a Head of House and his or her family, an Assistant Head of House, a Residential Don, a Supervised Study and Activities Coordinator, and a team of teachers who provide supervision on weekends.
