A day and boarding school for girls and boys aged 4 to 18 in Shebbear, Devon

Weekly and Flexi Boarding

Modern families are busy and life can be a juggling act between work, school, clubs and other commitments.

Many of our pupils choose weekly or flexi boarding to relieve the pressure of a busy lifestyle - and we don't blame them; they can ditch the commute, keep on top of their studies with personal support from our teachers, and still have plenty of time to spend having fun with their friends and enjoying the benefits of boarding life!

We know that investing in independent education is a big decision and we work hard to make sure that boarding is an affordable option for families. Both of our boarding houses have recently been refurbished to a high standard, creating a modern, yet homely place for boarders to live.

In 2023 we were ranked by The Telegraph as the most affordable independent school in Devon and Cornwall for weekly and flexi boarding.

We try to be as flexible as possible so that families can tailor boarding to suit their needs with our weekly or flexi options. Both options are popular due to their convenience, flexibility and cost effectiveness. 

Normally, pupils commit to certain days, however it is sometimes possible to accommodate ad hoc requests, depending on numbers.
