Boarding options

Full boarding

Our full time boarders benefit from additional supervised study time, plus a full programme of evening and weekend activities.

During the week, boarders concentrate on academic studies, as well as enjoying in a wide range of co-curricular, leisure and cultural activities.

At the weekend, our experienced boarding team ensure there are opportunities to learn new skills, to pursue interests, enjoy trips out and to have fun with friends.

Weekly boarding

Weekly boarding offers students the opportunity to experience the fun of boarding Monday to Friday, balanced with time at home each weekend.

This option provides extra time for academic studies in the week, but keeps a close link with home. It is particularly appealing to students who have a long daily journey and those approaching exams.

Flexi boarding

Flexi boarding enables  students to stay just a few nights per week, or for occasional sleepovers. Our flexi boarders use this option to take part in extra-curricular activities, study for exams or to provide temporary cover for a parent’s work or domestic commitments.

We also find that flexi boarding is a good introduction to boarding life and helps students to become more independent.

Boarders are very special members of the St Edmund’s community. The College is their home from home and we aim to make it as pleasant and comfortable as we can.
