Norfolk House is modern, purpose-built accommodation, comprising of mostly twin rooms with single rooms available for Sixth Formers and prefects.
Bedrooms are well equipped with storage and study areas, and the boys may personalise their rooms if they wish. Linen is provided by the school but boys may prefer to bring their own personal bed linen. Modern bathroom and shower facilities are available along with a recently refurbished kitchen for making snacks in the evenings and at the weekends. There is a large common room with up to date facilities for leisure time, including large screen TV with Sky box, pool table, Wi-Fi and various games consoles.
From the start, the boys are members of our friendly community and they quickly learn to support one another. The boys themselves play a vital role in running the house, and have every opportunity to develop skills of leadership and a sense of responsibility and sympathy to the needs of others.
Each new pupil (particularly juniors) is paired up with a ‘buddy’ when they arrive who shows them where everything is and helps him to settle in. The boys are well supported and the houses are run by a team dedicated to the pastoral care of each pupil.
Our boarding girls also live on the main school site in Selden House.
Selden House is part of the older buildings of the school but a massive programme of refurbishment completed in 2015, modernised the current provision. Bedrooms are well equipped with storage and study areas, and the girls may personalise their rooms if they wish. Older girls and prefects may have the chance of single study bedrooms whilst younger girls share, usually with two or three others. Linen is provided by the school but girls may prefer to bring their own personal bed linen. The house also boasts modern bathroom and shower facilities and a cosy common room, where the girls can gather in the evenings to chat, watch TV or play games.
