Boarding Statement:

The aims of Boarding at Prior's Field are to:

  • Safeguard and promote the welfare of each boarder
  • Enable girls to grow into independent, disciplined and self-reliant adults
  • Enable girls to develop good relationships with all sectors of the community
  • Enable girls to develop their own moral, spiritual and social values
  • Enable girls to fulfil their intellectual, academic, sporting and creative potential
  • Enable the girls to have opportunities for leadership and responsibility within the House

We fulfil these aims by:

  • Providing an atmosphere of mutual trust and respect within the Houses
  • Creating an enjoyable environment and community where all can live and work together in a spirit of harmony and tolerance
  • Providing time within the structure of the Houses programme for girls to discuss issues with a variety of adults
  • Encouraging the girls to take care of those within the Houses and outside in the broader community
  • Providing a framework  which will allow the girls to achieve a high standard in their interests and academic pursuits
  • Arranging varied and enjoyable opportunities for relaxation, hobbies, cultural and social outings
  • Acknowledging the provision of space for privacy as vital
  • Providing accommodation which is comfortable, well-maintained and appropriate to the needs of the girls
  • Providing an environment which is safe and free from danger
  • Providing opportunities for pupils to contribute their views in order to play an active role in shaping and developing the boarding provision

Boarding and Pastoral staff at Prior's Field ensure that all students in their care are safe and supported, that their needs are met and that together they all form and feel part of  the community that is Prior's Field Boarding.
