Year 13

4th year in boarding

I am now entering my 6th year at RGS, and 3rd year in boarding. For me, boarding has been the best few of years of my life, as it has opened up more opportunities for me to pursue the activities I love, while spending every evening with my friends. The valuable time I have gained through living in boarding has permitted me to continue with my many extra-curricular activities, such as rugby, music and languages, while still maintaining a high academic record and time to socialise with other boarders in the house. Unlike in school, boarding also provides the perfect opportunity to build friendships with boys outside of one’s own year group, and doing so creates a pleasant community within the house as a whole, making it enjoyable and homely for all boys. Being in boarding has created long lasting memories for me and has given me a strong foundation in preparing for life at university.
