Grange House has 8 units for up to 48 girls and 48 boys aged 11 to 16. Units 1 -4 houses the boys while units 5 – 8 house the girls. Each unit accommodates 12 students in a 3 room, 4 students per room structure with an ensuite bathroom.
We provide a caring and supportive environment to enable students develop their independence and take responsibility for their own actions. It is an opportunity to live independently but with a sense of working together as a team and participating in the community.
We offer full-time boarding (students, only leave the boarding at half term, full-term holidays and exeat requests). However parents can opt for flexi boarding (Monday - Friday) or occasional boarding for those parents wishing to book a space on an ad hoc basis when unexpected work, family or school commitments create logistical challenges.
Taking a lot of little steps towards maturity is one of the intangibles of going to boarding school. You have to learn to get along with others because it is a community. You learn to be responsible for your actions because you are bound by an honour and discipline code. The lessons in life learned in boarding school will lay a solid foundation for adulthood. You will see how positively boarding school will shape your child's life.
You will make friends for life. Most boarding school graduates look back at their years in school as a time when lasting friendships were established.
Boarding students quickly learn how to perform many household tasks and chores themselves and they also become more independent learners. In addition, boarders need to be responsible for managing their own money and belongings, helping them to mature earlier and become more resourceful.
Boarders often form very close friendships and connections with their boarding ‘family’. They have the benefit of having many shared experiences through living together and other extra-curricular opportunities.
