Boarding - Perrott Hill


At Perrott Hill, we aim to make boarding fun, safe and rewarding. It is a place where firm friendships are forged and where there are plenty of opportunities for children to develop their independence and increasing maturity.

Children are fully supported through emotional, physical and personal challenges by dedicated staff, including three live-in families and a further team of grads and live-in teaching staff. There are two dorms in the main house – boys and girls – as well as weekly Loft Nights, where a particular year group get exclusive use of the space up in the eaves, complete with an air hockey table, bean bags, sofas and a big TV for the obligatory film!

The school prides itself on being small and friendly and this extends to the dorms: the boarding community is close-knit and welcoming. The concept of ‘family’ is integral to the boarding at Perrott Hill and new pupils are very much made to feel at home. There is a dedicated quiet room in the Loft for children to Skype or FaceTime their families and all children are given a boarding buddy, to help and guide them during their first few weeks and months at the school. There are senior Boarding Captains and there is the chance for all boarders at the school to shine within various roles of responsibility.

Perrott Hill offers full, weekly and flexi boarding and we are very proud to have been the only Prep School in the country to be shortlisted for the prestigious Boarding Innovation Award at the BSA (Boarding Schools’ Association) Awards in May.

If boarding is something you are thinking of for your child or children, we would be delighted to show you around.
