Boarding Life

At Abbotsholme we have three main boarding houses in the senior school with house parents, who oversee the care of pupils from Year 6 to 13.  These boarding facilities have a range of options to suit you.  We can provide flexible accommodation which may be for a few nights each week, a weekly boarding option allowing students to stay Monday – Friday and full boarding which includes weekends.


Our boarding population comprises of students from the UK and other international countries, and helps to shape the culturally rich and diverse community of which we are extremely proud.


Our boarding houses are as follows:

Orchard - Girls' Boarding (Year 6 to 11)

Cedarholme - Boys' Boarding (Year 6 to 11)

Barnfield - Sixth Form Boarding Village (Year 12 and 13)
