Boarding at Brockhurst

"Boarders enjoy outstanding boarding experiences and enthusiastically discuss the provision when showing visitors around. They are confident, self-reliant and show high standards of integrity." Inspection report, 2012.

Brockhurst aims to make boarding an extension of family life. The Housemaster and his family live in the school next to the boarders and their house forms the focal point of the boys' boarding accommodation. With the assistance of his wife, supported by the Senior Matron (a qualified SRN) and the resident Assistant Matrons and other on-site boarding staff, a full and varied programme of boarding is offered with comprehensive pastoral care.

Full board

Full boarders are a very important part of the ethos of the school and great care and provision is given to ensuring their welfare and happiness. Weekends are busy and fulfilled and the Housemaster and his staff are available at all times to meet the needs of both the boarding boys and their parents. Boarders have their own common room in which to relax and full use of the school's outstanding facilities.

Part board

In recent years, Brockhurst has also evolved a flexible system of boarding which allows boys to board for one or more nights a week including at weekends according to choice. Our system of flexi-boarding gives boys all the fun that is shared in a boarding community and enables them to take advantage of the many hobbies and activities provided for boarders during evenings and at weekends. A flavour for the breadth of these can be found on the Latest News pages of the School's website.
By living together, boys learn to share and to have consideration for others and, with encouragement, they learn to stand on their own feet and, increasingly, to shoulder responsibility.
