Boarding at St Mary’s School is a wonderful opportunity for a fun, fulfilling and educational experience.

Within the warm, caring, home-from-home environment of the Boarding House, pupils can continue to study and have fun with their friends whilst participating in a range of enriching and educational activities and games. 

Have a look at our regular Boarders Blog to see what the pupils have been up to during the week!

Children at St. Mary’s may board from aged 7 (Form 3). Our flexi-boarding model allows them to build their confidence and independence gradually with the support and guidance of our highly experienced Boarding Staff. 

Boarding can be arranged as a weekly-boarding or flexi-boarding package:
  • Weekly-boarders can stay from Sunday to Thursday nights (inclusive)
  • Flexi-boarders can stay on any number of nights every week
Our boarders are happy and confident individuals and this early and flexible introduction to staying away from home is an invaluable learning experience for later life. 

Our new Boarding House  is due to open after Half Term and our excellent existing facilities are continually updated. The Boarding House was very highly praised by the Care Commission in our recent inspection by HMIe.

We are really excited about the development of boarding at St Mary’s School and are committed to helping the children in our care become confident, happy and independent individuals.
