Boarding at Prior’s Field combines the love and care of a family home with the stimulation, variety and support of a school. Modern day boarding has never been better and we are proud that our knowledgeable, caring and experienced staff offer the highest standards in their pastoral care and support of our young people as recognised by our most recent ISI inspection (2016) which spoke of the ‘atmosphere of trust, tolerance and friendship’ in the boarding houses.
Flexibility is the key, as we offer full, weekly and flexi boarding to suit the needs of modern families. We understand that parents are aiming to be strong role models for their children, often both working and yet risk
being pulled in all directions running them to clubs, activities, supporting homework and being a taxi service to allow for social activities. If girls board, all of those things are taken care of by us, with time saved on travelling to and from school. At Prior’s Field, we know that boarding is a decisive added bonus to an independent education.
Boarding should not be considered as a necessity or a chore; modern boarding works for modern parents and provides an alternative option to after school clubs, home alone children or paid nannies.
Weekday evenings and weekends are carefully structured to provide supervised prep and academic support, the opportunity to get involved with clubs, sports and activities and the all-important time with friends and their boarding family.
Our boarding houses exude warmth, homeliness and most important of all – laughter. Highs are celebrated and lows are shared – no girl feels she has to cope on her own. Close communication between us, parents and
school staff with the boarder at the centre allows us to develop almost bespoke care for your daughter.
Boarders have an extended programme of supervised activities after school and at weekends. They are always busy and fully engaged, but still find time to relax and have fun with their friends and boarding staff.
When they leave Prior’s Field they don’t just walk away with an exceptionally high standard of education, they take with them wonderful memories and lifelong friends.
