As well as the practical benefits which boarding delivers to parents and pupils, the St Hugh's boarding experience involves being part of a community in which children can flourish.

BOARDING OPTIONS

WEEKLY BOARDING: children arrive on Monday morning (alongside all other pupils) and stay until 10am on Saturday morning.

FLEXI BOARDING: children can be booked in to spend between one and four nights per week.

APPLICATIONS TO BOARD

Parents and children who are considering becoming boarders are encouraged to arrange a time to visit the boarding house for a tour and the opportunity to ask questions.

Boarding places are booked in advance on a termly basis. Parents wishing to reserve a weekly or flexi boarding place should respond to the boarding request link sent during the second half of each term. Requests for a boarding place partway through a term can be made by contacting the Houseparents boarding@st-hughs.co.uk and will depend upon availability.  

Allocation of places: applications are prioritised according to the number of nights requested: weekly places are allocated first, and then flexi places starting with those requesting the greater number of nights.
