THE HOUSE PARENTS

The Boarding Houses and the rules are all based on the same principles that naturally occur in a family home. Each Boarding House has House Parents that are there to oversee the smooth running of student life.

The Houseparents live in and share the Boarding House with their team of Graduate Assistants, resident and non-resident Tutors. The team’s responsibility is to care for the children, some of whom may be away from home for the first time.

A 24/7 EDUCATION

One of the main benefits of boarding is the round the clock education that students receive. This leads to effective academic, social and personal development.

The house parents and the tutors keep a close eye on both the academic performance and the wellbeing of each child and report back to parents on both areas in depth.

Boarding can provide an excellent transition from home to independence and maturity. The Senior Boarding Houses, and the outside villas, enable boys and girls to enjoy the benefits of boarding at an important stage in their school careers, and to prepare for life at university.
