Boarding: The Choice is Yours

The flexibility we offer at Lockers Park when it comes to boarding is indispensable for many of our parents; about half of our boys board and many day boys also stay for activities and prep in the late afternoons and evenings. Tatler’s Schools Guide 2016 concurs: “Day boys and boarders mix very well.”

Boarding options include full boarding, weekly boarding, or flexi-boarding. Lockers Park also offers free trial boarding to boys who want to find out what all the excitement is about.

Starting with just one or two nights and gradually building up to weekly or full boarding provides boys with valuable boarding experience in familiar and friendly surroundings.  This can be enormously helpful to boys who are likely to progress onto senior boarding schools.

Please contact Mr Erskine-Naylor if your son would like to try boarding for a night.

Testimonials

“Boarders at the school are happy and confident individuals who make the most of the opportunities on offer to them.  The school provides good care for its boarding pupils and nurtures their personal development well.”  Ofsted Boarding Inspection, March 2011

The dormitories are warm, cheerful and in excellent decorative order, and the boarders’ washrooms have been recently refurbished to a high standard.”  The Independent Schools Inspectorate, November 2011

“Due to work commitments it was necessary to try flexi-boarding and our son  absolutely loved it. He then joined Cubs and boarded every Thursday night. He began asking to board on activity nights too. If he could, he would board every night.”  Parent Testimonial, July 2016
