The Abbots Bromley boarding community enjoys a welcoming, warm and nurturing environment, a 'home from home'.
Our Junior Boarders enjoy growing up as part of the extended family where members of staff know them well and they are cared for in a sociable and secure environment. Activities and outdoor play are encouraged over televisions and computer games, and boarders learn the skills needed to live in a community. They develop strong friendships and independence within boundaries and are able to grow up as individuals, celebrating their differences within a diverse and multi-cultural environment in a community based on mutual respect – an excellent preparation for the modern world.
There are separate boarding houses for girls and boys. Full-time Junior Boarding is available for girls (Year 3 to Year 6) and boys (Year 3 to Year 7) enabling a smooth transition into the Senior School boarding houses.
Boarding has become a popular option for busy parents who wish their child to flexi board for a few nights a week, or to stay occasionally when parents may need to spend a few nights away for business or other commitments.
Some pupils opt to board on a weekly basis and we are always delighted to welcome young overseas boarders into our boarding community.
Day pupils have the option of occasional boarding, and many pupils take up their allocation of two free nights per term, which is included in the fees.
Day pupils are welcomed to various Boarding events and sleepovers during the year, with 'Parents' Night Off' discos proving extremely popular.
