A home from home


A taste of independence and responsibility

From Division III children are able to board overnight for one to four nights a week on a regular or more flexible basis. A fun, sociable experience, spending a night or two at school develops confidence, a growing independence and responsibility for themselves, their belongings and that of others. In our most recent inspection, the boarding provision was rated excellent, just like the rest of the school.

Dedicated Boarding Houses

With dedicated boys’ and girls’ boarding houses, boarders are able to enjoy the art room, computing suites outdoor facilities in the school’s grounds and accompanied trips to nearby Old Hunstanton beach on warm summer evenings. Having enjoyed a late tea with day pupils, both boarding houses have snack-making facilities, along with games and supervised access to television and films.

I love boarding because it’s fun to spend time to with my friends and I have learnt to make my bed and tidy my things. It’s like a fun sleepover night with my friends.

Developing Friendships

One of the most enjoyable aspects of being a boarder is spending time with friends after school, developing strong friendships and encouraging ages and genders to mix in a relaxed environment. Almost a half of our Prep School pupils board at some stage of their school life here, showing what a popular aspect of Glebe the boarding provision truly is.

The staff who lead boys’ and girls’ boarding ensure that each child is happy, settled and respectful to their roommates, making the experience enjoyable and memorable.
