Boarding Taster

Whether you have boarded at your previous school, are completely new to boarding, or are a day girl already at PF  we offer the opportunity for you to come and spend a night in one of the boarding houses.  This will give you time to see what a typical evening is like and meet current boarders and staff.

There are several options you can consider:

For those in Year 6 already registered to join PF you can visit with other prospective boarders in the Autumn and Spring Term. This usually runs from Friday evening until Saturday afternoon. Dates for these events are published in advance and sent with registration information.

For older prospective boarders, or if you are not able to attend on these dates, we will work with you to find an alternative time. We will often plan this so you can also have a taster day in school with our current pupils. You will be provided with a ‘buddy’ for the duration of your visit. Your buddy and the boarding staff will ensure you have an enjoyable time and are well looked after

In the Sixth Form House we run a similar system and also offer the opportunity for our Yr. 11 pupils to book in for a night in our ‘taster room’. Sixth Form House staff are very aware that moving up to sixth form can seem quite daunting, so have prepared a room where girls can join the sixth form for the night to experience the more university style setting.  As with the younger years, all visitors will be given a buddy who will look after them during their stay, and the sixth form boarding team will ensure they are well looked after.

For those currently attending PF these arrangements can be made through the Housemistresses.
