The Head of Boarding and our resident House Parents, identify and promote each student’s learning skills, monitor and guide academic progress, and deal promptly and sympathetically with any personal situation that may arise.
All our students feel respected as individuals, and our expert staff actively support their personal, social, and educational development. Our team is strengthened by resident teacher/advisors, the Boarding Nurse, a School Counsellor, and our student Peer Group.
We recognise teamwork and leadership skills are foundations for organizational success, and have designed a programme to develop the interpersonal and problem solving abilities of our students. Working with specialist companies, our highly interactive programme includes team building workshops, a ‘Leaders of Tomorrow’ programme (in partnership with a Colchester school), Junior and Senior leadership conferences, as well as opportunities to become a member of the Student Council, a House Captain, and even Boarding House President.
Our aim here is to ensure teachers and parents work closer together to better progress each child's academic and social development through the sharing of information, concerns, hopes, and plans.
All study bedrooms are either single or twin, and all have a private bathroom. Furnishings are to a very high standard and include wall-to-wall carpeting, built-in wardrobes (closets), desks, lamps, bookcases, beds and bedside units.
