At Hazlegrove our boarders are the heartbeat of the school.
It’s of paramount importance to us that your children feel safe and happy staying here, and our thriving community of around 100 full-time boarders is testament to our success.
You can be confident that our experienced houseparents and boarding staff will take care of your child’s physical and emotional wellbeing, ensuring they have a relaxed and fun time at our school.
It’s not an easy decision to make, but with many of our boarder families choosing Hazlegrove on the strength of personal recommendations from past and current pupils, we know we can offer a positive boarding experience both for boarders and their parents. It’s a wonderful opportunity for your child to reach their potential, grow in confidence and make friends and memories that will last a lifetime.
We currently have around 100 boarders aged 7 to 13 years old accommodated in three boarding houses each with dedicated houseparents heading up the house ‘family’.
Our Boarding Ethos
For the boarders there is a genuine sense of belonging.
Pastoral care in the boarding houses is underpinned by the philosophy that each
and every child should be parented every day.
Regan Schreiber, Head of Boarding, writes, ‘We believe in being a parent to the children and finding a connection with each and every child, which can only be done by spending time with them individually. Kindness and love are present in all that we do. We accept the children for who they are and where they are at present. We are able to accomplish this by having dedicated and passionate staff, who believe wholeheartedly in the role that they play in the children’s lives. We all believe in promoting childhood and making
sure that the children have a magical time whilst at Hazlegrove’.
The boarding was last inspected as part of the Integrated ISI Inspection in the Autumn Term, 2015 and again as part of the Regulatory Compliance Inspection in September 2018. We were delighted that the school was considered to be outstanding in all nine areas of judgement. Click here for more information and a link to the inspection report.
