Boarding Houses

Provides students with a warm and safe environment where they may relax, study and socialise.

Boarding Houses

There are 6 supervised boarding houses where a house parent and daytime supervisors provide care and support. The buildings all have a secure coded entrance and are centrally heated, providing students with a warm and safe environment where they may relax, study and socialise with their housemates. We provide single or twin rooms, and each bedroom is separately locked.

The size of each house varies, accommodating from eighteen up to forty students. Allocation to a boarding house is based on gender, age and the course the student is studying. House parents, as well as offering welfare support, also ensure that students adhere to the boarding rules, which are age-appropriate. Access to the internet is curtailed at bedtime. House parents will offer younger students greater guidance with respect to laundry routines, personal hygiene, and homework sessions, all of which help to show students, away from home for the first time, how to organise their daily lives. Boarders, other than those in their final year, attend supervised Evening Study Hall sessions on weekday evenings to keep them organised with their studies.

Home from Home

Bosworth offers both full and weekly boarding. All the supervised houses are modern in style and are furnished to a high standard with a common room and a kitchen area as well as laundry facilities. The common room has some indoor recreational facilities including television, DVD player, pool table and free wifi. Residential students from 13-18 years of age reside in our fully supervised boarding houses. Older students, with approval, may transfer to a college senior house. All accommodation is single-sex with a choice of a single or twin shared rooms.

Meals are taken in our restaurant, where we provide a wide choice of meals, catering for all tastes and recognising any specific dietary needs. During the week, Monday-Friday, we also have a bistro-style café where students can elect to have a lighter lunch or snack.

The restaurant and bistro are both located in Bosworth Hall, where in the evening and at weekends this is the central hub for students to meet and relax with friends.

Students can stay at the College during all half-term holidays for no extra cost and the restaurant stays open. Where there is sufficient demand accommodation can be made available during the Easter holiday at a reasonable rate, as we recognise the importance of revision during this time of year. Every weekday at mid-morning and mid-afternoon break a variety of hot and cold drinks and biscuits are available for students to enjoy at no extra charge.
