Our accommodation for the English and Science students is on campus and our University Preparation students (when the course is residential) are accommodated in College residences off campus. All accommodation is arranged by gender and age and each residence is managed by at least one Boarding Parent living in the residence who will check regularly on the student’s health and wellbeing. Bell and Taylors have supervision from 5 pm.
