Introduction to Boarding
The Royal has a long and successful history of providing a nurturing and stable boarding environment. We offer full, weekly and flexi-day boarding and have comfortable accommodation in shared rooms on site for up to 110 pupils. Boarding has always been a fundamental part of the life and spirit of The Royal and this continues to be so now that we are a Free School.
“The staff provide strong pastoral and academic support to ensure that the boarders’ holistic needs are met. Boarders, parents and professionals are unanimous in their praise and describe the boarding provision as having a warm, welcoming, ‘family’ atmosphere.”

"I really enjoy the sense of family between everyone and the fact you aren’t alone in anything. The houseparents are really lovely and helpful. Overall, I like how everyone is like a family."
"I like the routine; it helps me focus on when I should do work and means I can enjoy my free time."
My daughter has been part of the Royal school for the last 8 years ! She’s always felt safe and valued and enjoys being part of a community. It will be a sad day when she leaves the school to go to university, but we all have fond memories that will stay with us for years to come.
