Boarding at The Royal School

Open the door to our boarding houses and you will find smiling and happy boarders. You will feel the warmth of their welcome and find a place buzzing with energy.  We welcomed Senior Boys as boarders in September 2016 and they are enriching our Royal School family with their presence.

The combination of our values and the encouragement of every individual boarder to fulfil themselves whilst taking a full part in the family life of The Boarding House are what make us unique. Boarding staff work closely with parents to ensure that each pupil gets the very best out of boarding school life.

Collaboration and support for each other are strongly engrained in what we do and how we do it. We are a community where everyone works together to foster qualities of caring and an appreciation of the qualities of others both in public and in private.

Boarders are provided with plenty of opportunities and support to help them become confident, independent-thinking individuals who combine a strong sense of self-worth with respect for other people. It is our hope that pupils feel proud to be boarders at The Royal School and that, in later life, they look back on the experience as having been both enriching and formative.

Our commitment to our boarders and their parents is that every voice is heard. We will always go an extra mile to help and support our boarders and guide them on their exciting journey to adulthood and ensure that The Royal School boarder grows into an inquisitive, well-balanced, well-informed and finely mannered young person who will cherish memories of their boarding years at The Royal School.
