Meet the Boarders
Kirill Y8 from Russia says
“In the boarding house, there are lots of interesting people and
things to do. I like playing basketball in the evenings
with the two pro players from China and learning to play ping pong with
the other boarders. In the mornings, I like going running
along the beach or swimming in the school pool before breakfast”.
Alex Y11 from Romsey says
“In the boarding house, I can go for a morning swim or jog and play
basketball to keep fit and also have the freedom to attend the local
Rugby Academy and play for Bournemouth at weekends. But
the best thing about boarding is the friends you make and the
interesting people from all over the world in the house”.
Steph Y9 from Alderney says
“Being a boarder means you can never be lonely because you always
have friends around you. You can never get bored here
because there are many activities going on such as ice skating, museum
visits, cinema trips and even dry slope ski bobbing. We
also enjoy our competitive table tennis and table football matches.
The house staff are very much like parents and make everything
Nele Y8 from Germany says
“ When my Mum first came up with the idea to go to boarding school in
England, I couldn’t believe it – so far away from my home, but in the
first week in the boarding house, I found good friends and every day
feels more and more like home. Now I can’t imagine being without my
friends and new family”.
“Als meine Mutter zuerst die Idee hatte, dass ich ein Internat in
England besuched sollte konnte ich es mir nicht vorstellen. So
weit weg von zuhause, aber schon in der ersten Woche in dem Boarding
House habe ich Freunde gefunden und jeden Tag fuelhe ich
mich mehr zuhause. Unsere Freundschaft ist jetzt so gut
und ich koennte mich nicht vorstellen, ohne meine Freunde und meine neue
Ersatzfamilie zu leben”.
Becky Year 13 from East Wittering
"The boarding staff provide a warm and supportive atmosphere,
enabling the boarding students to work to the best of their potential
and to be happy, well- rounded individuals. Many of our boarders say
that they have more fun here than the day students, as they are always
surrounded by friends and there so many activities going on. The
boarding community is mixed and is multicultural, this enables all the
boarding students to understand and learn about different cultures and
religions. Many of our boarding students stay friends for life."
