Introduction to Preparatory School Boarding
At Bromsgrove School the aspiration is that for boarders, the boarding house is a home from home. Resident Houseparents are members of the teaching staff, and they are assisted by housemothers (who oversee the domestic arrangements) and non-resident house tutors. Boarding should be a joy, a confidence builder and a voyage of discovery. Occasional boarding is possible; we are flexible if boarders wish to go home on a Saturday night (most do not), and Sunday programmes are hugely varied.
Boarding at Bromsgrove Prep is so much more than the excellent teacher/pupil ratio one expects in a first class boarding school. A team of dedicated nurses under control of the School Doctor provides on site medical care in the School’s Health Centre; high quality varied food from chefs preparing three good meals a day (not a reheated import) is standard; and there are staff on hand twenty four hours a day, seven days per week.
For those considering boarding at Bromsgrove, we are more than happy to arrange taster days/weekends to give the children an opportunity to see if boarding life would suit them.
