Boarding at Beechwood
Beechwood is not a full boarding school, but instead offers flexible boarding up to four nights a 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.
We are the Beechwood House Parents, and live in the House with our children, plus our newest addition, Connie the Jack Russell terrier. In addition to running the house, we have additional school roles – as Head of Geography (Rob) and School Matron (Claire).
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.
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!
