Prep boarding

Prep boarding

King's students enrolled in Year 4 and upwards may board, either as full boarders, or as weekly boarders who go home on weekends. Weekly boarding is becoming particularly attractive as an option for busy parents who are looking for the best of both worlds: an excellent education during the week, yet the capacity to spend quality recreational time with their sons on the weekend.

The Prep boarding facilities are centred in the beautiful and historic grounds of the Gowan Brae mansion which adjoins the Preparatory School. Run by a devoted staff, including a Housemaster, tutors and house parents, a homely environment is provided for the boarders.

Parents choose boarding as an option for their sons for many reasons. Some register a liking for the extra academic help available to students after normal school hours, whilst others value the security that a boarding environment can give, where students are supervised at all times and acceptable group ‘norms’ are established which encourage appropriate behaviours.

Perhaps one of the most significant benefits that boarding can give is to teach students in what it means to live in community. A boarding experience can require students to be mindful of the needs and opinions of others. For further information about boarding at The King's School, contact the Registrar.
