Flexi Boarding is a flexible system designed to meet the needs of busy parents and to allow pupils to take full advantage of the many after school activities in the evenings and at weekends.
Flexi Boarders may arrive in school any time after 7.30 am to have a full breakfast. This is helpful for parents who need to leave early for work. Parents may collect their children any time up until boarders of the same age group go upstairs to prepare for bed.
Flexi Boarders are expected to stay overnight in a boarding house for 7 - 10 nights a year. We have created an online booking system and login details are sent to parents after the start of term.
The costs of the overnight stays are included in the Flexi Boarding charges. Flexi Boarding charges cover breakfast, lunch and tea Mondays to Fridays and breakfast only on Saturdays. Any Flexi Boarding pupil who stays on for lunch or beyond after Saturday morning school will be charged according to the applied rates.
After lessons during the week, Flexi Boarders are expected to take full advantage of:
|Compulsory Activities||4.00 - 5.00 pm (some activities may take place later in the evening)|
|Tea||5.00 - 6.00 pm|
|Prep (Junior)||5.30 - 6.30 pm|
|Prep (Year 7 & 8)||6.00 - 7.00 pm|
|Prep (Year 9)||6.30 - 7.30 pm|
|Prep (Year 10 & 11)||6.30 - 8.00 pm|
We believe that the needs of each pupil and family are unique. We offer a service that is flexible enough to meet almost all of these needs.
