If you’re reading this you’ve perhaps decided that boarding might suit your son or daughter. If so, the next step is to think of arrangements that best suit your family. Unlike before, when youngsters were packed off to school at the age of 7 or 8 and didn’t see home again until the end of term, our boarding school offers parents a choice of full / monthly boarding, weekly boarding.
Whichever option you choose, there’s no doubt that we at RPS are more skilled than ever at helping your child settle in and feel at home. Children are encouraged to keep in regular touch with their parents.
Full / Monthly Boarding
Full boarding schools are in the minority these days, but if you’re looking for a school with full/monthly boarding, you still have options.
Weekly boarding is growing in popularity, particularly for children who live too far away to be day pupils or whose parents work long hours and/or frequently travel abroad. Weekly boarders either go home on Friday evenings or Saturday afternoons or return to school on Sunday evenings or Monday mornings. For many children, this offers the best of both worlds: they can enjoy school during the week, work hard and spend lots of time with their friends, then relax at home with their parents on Saturdays and Sundays.
