Boarding Life

A happy, thriving boarding house with a long tradition

Being in the Boarding House means that pupils can fully immerse themselves in their studies and the wider life of the School.

Life as a boarder at St Margaret’s provides pupils with a sense of community, alongside supportive pastoral care. Wonderful lifelong friendships are formed during their time in the Boarding House.

Our boarding staff are always on hand should any of the pupils feel that they need a chat. Ensuring our boarders are happy, comfortable and safe is at the forefront of priorities.

The convenience of being on the School site means that less time is spent travelling which enables our boarders to dedicate more time to their academic aspirations.

Every Saturday there is an outing on offer which is free of charge to all full boarders.

We visit a variety of different places ranging from fun days out at theme parks to cultural experiences at historical attractions such as Windsor Castle. Trips to local towns such as Oxford, Cambridge and Brighton often prove popular as these provide pupils with the opportunity to go shopping with friends.

We also provide opportunities throughout the year for the pupils to try taster sessions in different activities. In the past the boarders have tried horse riding, skiing, fencing, street dancing, climbing and go karting.
