We understand that some busy working families need assistance and that from time to time students benefit from more structure in their lives. With this in mind, the School has introduced Urban Boarding, with two boarding options offered:
- Day Boarding – catering for students from Years 7 to 12, from 3.05pm until 8.00pm from Monday to Thursday.
- Short Term Boarding – catering for students from Years 7 to 12, providing short term stays in the boarding house.
Benefits of Urban Boarding
- Academic supervision and tutoring – boarding Year Group Co-ordinators supervise the boys and provide assistance with school work. Tutors are also on hand to assist the boys in certain subject areas.
- Meals – all meals are provided by Chartwells. Their focus is on fresh, nutritious food created in consultation with a dietitian. Plenty of healthy options are provided on a daily basis. Dietary requirements can be catered for.
- Facilities – the boys will have access to a full gymnasium and weights room, 50 metre pool, and a wide range of sporting facilities including pool and table tennis tables. There are also study areas and other common areas where the boys can socialise and interact.
- Senior School library (Years 7 and 8) – the library caters for boys’ recreational and curriculum needs. It is an exciting space offering boys a wide range of learning environments – formal and informal, among peers or a quiet corner alone.
