Boarding at Shebbear College


A ‘home from home’ for boys and girls aged 8-18.

Our three boarding houses, Pollard, Pyke and Ruddle offer a real ‘home from home’ for all our boarding pupils, where they can relax, play and achieve. The houses have a warm, friendly atmosphere where pupils can feel happy, safe and secure.

Each room has internet access making leisure time, study and communication easier and more enjoyable. The social areas are homely and comfortable and have all the necessary facilities to allow pupils to relax with friends, watch television and films, listen to music and play games. The houses have kitchen areas where pupils can prepare drinks and snacks.

All of the school facilities are available for our boarders to use in the evenings and weekends and there is also an extensive selection of activities for them to choose from.

The houses have the security of close supervision by our experienced and caring house staff and boarders are given the freedom to grow and mature within a ‘family environment’.

Boarding life offers a healthy balance between working hard during the structured school day and the enjoyment of fun activities with friends during leisure time.
