Accommodation

Accommodation

We are members of Boarding Schools Association (BSA) State Boarding Forum and one of the only Sixth Form Colleges in the UK that offers student accommodation; our outstanding educational reputation sees us welcome students from all across the UK, Europe and Internationally.

We offer three accommodation options; full time boarding in Oak House, flexi-boarding in Oak House or Homestay with a local family (this option is a popular option for those visiting the UK for the first time).

Choosing to board, perhaps for the first time, may seem daunting but you’ll get the chance to mix with a diverse new range of people, surrounded by plenty of support as you prepare for a future of independent living. Our aim as a Sixth Form College is to equip you with the skills to confidently navigate adulthood when you progress on from College and those who stay with us often find the move to university less of a leap.

Flexi-boarding (short stays of one to a few nights a week) can also be a great option for some. You may want to consider flexi-boarding if;

  • you have sporting commitments, such as evening matches or training
  • you have after college enrichment
  • you have a long commute
  • you want a taste of living away from home and making new friends
