Boarding at Beechwood

Beechwood is not a “full” boarding school, but instead boarding at Beechwood offers flexible boarding up to four nights a week, with most boarders staying with us three nights each week.

By the time our Top Formers leave us, most will have had some boarding experience. We usually have around 60 boarders with us on any given night during the term, from Year 5 to Top Form.

The boarding house is a “home from home” and most of our boarders live nearby but choose to board for the transformative experience it offers them as they mature.  It doesn’t matter how many nights a boarder chooses to spend with us during the week – their bed is their own, and is “booked” by the term.

All staff involved, help to create this homely environment, by leading and participating in after school life, including but not restricted to helping pupils with prep, supervising their music practice and sitting with them during reading time before bed.

Boarding at Beechwood is a wonderful place to be, just ask any of our boarders!

Acting Head of Boarding

Boarding at Beechwood is so much fun - the teachers make it feel just like home, and we have so much fun in the evenings with games and activities. You'd be mad not to try it!

Boarding pupils are keen and confident trying activities that are out of the ordinary or challenge the norms, as staff ensure that the boarding activities are extremely wide in their scope and inventiveness and do not miss opportunities that the site and surroundings can offer.

We know when we drop our daughter off on Tuesday morning that she is going to have the best time boarding at Beechwood, until we see her again on Thursday evening - staff ensure that she is happy, having fun, doing her homework and music practice and generally just learning a bit more independence and confidence. We think it has been a transformative experience for her.
