Flexible Boarding

Experiencing all the fun of boarding

A flexible approach to boarding
Monkton is a boarding/day school with an inclusive Christian ethos.  Boarding at Monkton is a modern boarding model that seeks to replicate the family atmosphere of a home.  The boarding house is a home-from-home, where relationships are familiar in nature, the environment relaxed and stable.  This underlies the changes to a more homely geography of boarding houses, the recruitment of Houseparents as the leadership of these communities and the encouragement of strong and close bonds between pupils of different ages within their boarding houses.
In this environment, we believe that young people prosper and develop in confidence and in character, they become more considerate and better at relating to a wider diversity of people.  Furthermore, young people develop independence within carefully set parameters so that they become more able to be self-regulated young people when they go on to university, where most students are ‘boarders’.
To help young people ‘settle in’ to boarding, a more flexible set of boarding packages are offered at the Prep School and for the first year of boarding at the Senior School (Weekly and Home and Away).   Day pupils at Senior School are entitled to spend 10 nights at Monkton without extra charge (subject to the availability of beds) each academic year.  The extended day fee at the Prep School includes 3 nights boarding a term (in addition to breakfast, activity and supper each day).
