Why Boarding?

Boarding 5

As parents we all worry about our work-life balance and perceived lack of ‘quality time’ with our children. Boarding at Beachborough can help give parents and children the best of both worlds.  Here are some of the reasons our parents have told us about why boarding at Beachborough works for their family:

Quality family time

Boarding removes the pressure of juggling your children’s different activities and Prep each evening, enabling the time spent as a family at home to become real quality time.


Children of different ages

Parents with children of different ages prefer, especially in the winter, for their older child to board so they don’t have to take younger siblings out in the cold at the 6.45pm pick up.


Value for money

The boarding fee includes laundry, supper, breakfast and boarding activities  and with the cost of  fuel it can work out cheaper for children to board each week.


No daily commute

Many parents’ work commitments can make it difficult getting children to and from school each day and they often prefer for their children to stay at school to enjoy the fun boarding activities instead.


Transport to local clubs

Family commitments often make it impossible  to collect children from  the hockey, netball or rugby training sessions at local clubs during the week, so many parents take advantage of the free transport Beachborough provides for boarders to these clubs – especially as the children love boarding with their friends afterwards.

Beachborough take boarders to the following training sessions:

  • Girls’ netball training at Brackley Netball Club
  • U13 Boys rugby training at Buckingham Rugby Club
  • Girls’ hockey training at Buckingham Hockey Club
  • Boys’ 11+ Hockey Training at Banbury Hockey Club
