Boarding Experience
Boarding Life

Engagement and Inclusion

All Upper School students participate in an advisory programme and residential life evenings during which topics of interest are discussed and explored by the students under the guidance of their Head of House.

In each house, the students are divided into mixed or single grade groups depending on the topic being addressed.

For example, mixed grade groups will work through an ethical dilemma case study under the guidance of senior students. Senior students from a residence will also meet to discuss financial planning and budgeting for university the following year.
