Year 13

7th Year in Boarding

Boarding life has given me the opportunity to have the perfect mix of school work and free time where I’ve been able to easily fit in many extra-curricular activities. During the school day it is great to be able to come back to the house for meals and relaxing with friends in the common room. After school there is plenty of free time to partake in many different activities that school and boarding have to offer, such as sports or activities run by boarding staff which are always enjoyable.  I have also felt that the structured homework time that boarding provides has thoroughly helped the academic side of my school career as it has allowed me to have a set work time which has enabled me to perform well in school. Finally, I’ve made many close friends and built relationships with students in every year due to boarding which wouldn’t be possible otherwise.
