Beachborough offers a first-class boarding experience for girls and boys aged 7-13.
We offer a number of boarding options to suit every child, family, and budget – whether that’s a flexible boarding arrangement to allow children to ‘sleep over’ with friends a few nights per week or weekly boarding, you can find the right boarding arrangements for your own family circumstances and your child’s temperament.
Beachborough’s Boarding Houses
Improvements to the Manor House have seen the beautiful refurbishment of our boarding houses; giant spitfires and the misty woods of Narnia adorn walls where around 80 boys and girls board on a regular basis. Here independence is nurtured and lasting friendships made.
Children can choose to board from one to four nights. The dormitories are organised into friendship groups which has proved very popular among both children and parents– this means that you can be sure your child is around loved ones and happy in the boarding environment.
Resident members of staff ensure that hair is brushed and breakfast eaten before the rigours of each day, as well as providing educational or pastoral support when it’s needed. Every house also has 1-3 Senior Borders from Year VIII. These boarders act as leaders for their house and set an example to their fellow pupils when they start their time at Beachborough Boarding.
Our Boarding Programme
At 6.45pm a Boarders’ Programme kicks in. The Housemaster organises a range of activities, from formal dinners and Christmas and summer parties to fun games and movie nights, that make boarding at Beachborough such a success. The highlight of the year is always the summer water fight where the children especially enjoy the chance to soak the Headmaster and senior members of staff.
Our Boarder’s Programme keeps children engaged and entertained, as well as helping to bond friendship groups further and ensure that every child and personality type is supported. Children are encouraged to pursue their own interests as long as priority is given to school fixtures and events – our extensive programme of extra-curricular activities easily caters to our boarders’ interests and preferences.
After activities, boarders wind down in the boarders’ rooms to watch TV, play games, or have a snack in the kitchen while catching up on the day. Bed times vary from 7:45pm to 9pm, depending on age, but exceptions can be made for good behaviour or part of a set activity.
