We currently have around 100 boarders aged 7 to 13 years old accommodated in three boarding houses:
- Blackford - The Girls' Boarding House
- Lankester - The Junior Boys' Boarding House
- School House - The Senior Boys' Boarding House
Girls' Boarding : Blackford House, Years 3-8
The girls in Blackford are looked after by Mr and Mrs Forbes (Houseparents) assisted by Mrs Pagliaro and Mrs Matthews (Matrons). There are GAP / Graduate students who assist in the evenings and mornings and residential staff work in the House during the week. The residential staff are: Mrs Benbow, Mrs Schreiber, Miss Milne, Miss MacDonagh and Miss Proctor.
Mr Forbes is Director of Boarding and teaches PE, he loves sport and the great outdoors whilst Mrs Forbes teaches English to the upper school and enjoys the sunshine, beach trips, bbqs as well as the British Summer! Together they offer the girls in Blackford a nurturing, supportive environment where they can grow and develop (and have a lot of fun too!).

Mr and Mrs Froggatt are responsible for the care of our boy boarders at Hazlegrove across both of the boys' boarding houses. They live in School House with the senior boys (Years 7 and 8) and are supported by Assistant Boys' Houseparent, Mr Atkinson who lives with his family in Lankester House (Years 3-6).
