6th year in boarding
I have been in boarding since year 7, originally as a day boarder and then as a weekly boarder from year 9. I can confidently say that I have thoroughly enjoyed my time at both RGS and in boarding. Throughout my time I have took up many different opportunities thanks to boarding. Boarding offers multiple different opportunities which just aren’t possible in school. For example, many of the boarding tutors have helped me academically, simply because I have been able to ask subject teachers for help. This also allows you to develop relationships with the teachers which in the long run help you to achieve better results. Moreover, I have been able to use a lot of the school’s facilities like the rugby pitches when I want to practice certain skills, helping me improve at my rugby. Yet, perhaps the best part of boarding is the fact that I’m always surrounded by some of my best friends, no matter what year group.
