We pride ourselves on our welcoming community for students wishing to board with us. Our boarding houses are small, which ensures pupils and Houseparents feel part of a close-knit community, and no child is ever overlooked.

We ensure pupils and boarding staff feel part of a close-knit community.

Our boarding community is relatively small, with seven boarding properties overall. Our Boarding Houses are age-appropriate and single-sex to ensure the needs for privacy is respected and the right community atmosphere is created for our pupils.

Mentor Support

Each house has its own Houseparent, and a dedicated team of staff comprising tutors and matrons.

Mentoring is a big part of our boarding culture: staff and other students – younger or older – give each other help, support and encouragement without prompting. After school, boarders also receive increased academic support from teachers during homework sessions.

Boarding Houses

Miss Smith is already Head of House at St Martin's and is well known by our boarders. St Martin’s can simply and best be described as a home from home. The St Martin's experience, led by Miss Smith, centres on nurturing a kind and caring community, with positivity and fun at its essence, and a true sense of belonging at its heart.

Year 11 - Year 12

Welland House

Anyone who has visited Byard House in recent years will know ‘Miss D’ has developed a warm, inclusive and purposeful culture in Byard and we have no doubt she will do the same in the senior boys' House.

Park House is a fun and friendly Sixth Form girls House. It is run by Mr Blumfield who many students will know from PE, Hockey and Cricket. He took on the role last academic year and brings energy, independence, and family values to the House along his wife and new born daughter Persephone.

Our Boarding Options

Boarding Options

Our boarding packages include full (seven nights), weekly (three to five nights), or flexible (one to two nights) options.

You can also book occasional nights, subject to availability. All of our boarding houses are homely and welcoming for all students.

Weekly Boarding

Boarding for three, four or five nights a week can significantly reduce school commute times and gives you the option to have your child home at weekends when you have free time together.

Full Boarding

This is a traditional boarding experience for seven days a week during term time. Our Houses are full at the weekends, with students enjoying a social life rich in after-school clubs, sports, fun-packed trips at weekends and activities tailored to their age group. Boarders can enjoy after-school clubs, social activities and weekend trips, and make use of our leisure centre and pool, or take advantage of support and advice from tutors and Houseparents during homework time.

Flexi Boarding

One to two nights a week, which can help with busy evenings or as your logistics require. This option is particularly helpful for students who have early morning clubs, training or fixtures and can stay at school the night beforehand.

Occasional

This option is used more by day families who require the occasional weekend of childcare support for work commitments or weekends away or for students who may just want to enjoy the experience of boarding with friends for a change of scene.

Location

It is exceptionally important that students who board with us live near their school campus.

Having the lower years' Senior Boarding in the heart of the Stamford School site we will create a hub for our younger Boarding Houses. Whilst the boys' and girls' Houses will provide separate accommodation, we hope that their pastoral activities, trips, meals and downtime can be enjoyed together when appropriate. 

International

Whilst 80% of our boarders are from the UK, there is a spread of other nationalities giving boarders the opportunity to make friends with pupils from other cultures.

International Boarding

Military Families

Around a third of our boarders are from Forces families, whose parents are serving both across the UK and internationally. Funding through the CEA is available for military families.
