Cedarholme boys' boarding house is home to a number of full, weekly and flexi boarders. Our younger boys, up to Year 9, board in twin bedrooms on our junior corridor, with their own bathroom facilities, kitchen and common room. Our senior boys, Years 10 and 11, live upstairs. We come together as a house at the start of each morning for roll call.
Throughout Cedarholme we encourage responsibility from young age, and boys take ownership of cleaning their kitchens, sorting laundry, and morning wake ups.
Boarders are supported by James Diamond, the Matron, and a team of duty staff who offer a timetable of after school activities and academic support. Each evening we have Sixth Form pupils on house to assist with prep. In addition to this, we have in house prefects - experienced boarders who are able to offer guidance on all aspects of boarding life.
As a community we take part in a range of activities which have recently included football, golf, roller disco, go karting, video game tournaments, foraging & baking, laser tag, carpet bowls, darts, hide & seek across the school site, film making, and mountain biking. In addition, Monday & Thursday night football on the synthetic pitch are staples of Cedarholme life.
The duty office, the hub of the boarding house, is rarely without music, and boarders collaborate to create playlists and choose a track of the week for the house.
We celebrate and share individual passions and achievements in house, and enjoy displaying the art work, photography and poetry of our boarders. Birthdays are celebrated with cake at morning roll call.
