The Abbey Boarding House
The primary Abbey Boarding House occupies rooms in the main Abbey building. This is the oldest, and most beautiful part of the boarding facilities and is also the most centrally located boarding house of the three. Boarders here have the benefit of being able to find quiet places to study in the 6th form computer room, and the library. They also only have to come down stairs to have their meals in the dining room. This is where all boarders from the other houses also have their meals. In their leisure time boarders can play one of the three pianos in the Abbey, or play on the astro. Walking around the ruins is a popular past time in the summer months. There is a strong family ethos in the Abbey boarding house, as this is where we have the greatest range of student nationalities. We have both boys and girls ranging from Year 7 to Year 12. A matron is on duty each evening so that there is someone in the girls’ end of the building to turn to at night. The resident Boarding Family live at the other end of the building for the same purpose for the boys. Living in the Abbey is a magical experience which stays with people for the rest of their lives. If your son/daughter is placed in the Abbey boarding house we are sure they will thoroughly enjoy the experience.
