Boys Boarding at BCS caters for boys (and young men) from Year 6 to 13. It is located right next to the impressive BCS Sports Hall on the school campus, with the bedrooms wrapping around, over two floors.
The top floor is exclusively for the young men of the Sixth Form and the lower floor for Years 6 to 11. The house has 38 rooms in total, with 26 double bed rooms, 11 single bed rooms, including 4 flats with en-suite facilities. The rooms are modern, comfortable, well-equipped and homely.
There are 3 washrooms and two kitchens, in which hot drinks, snacks and meals can be prepared, that service the two floors. There are planned developments to create an open communal area on one of the floors as well as a new TV lounge in the house. Protected Wi-Fi internet access is available allowing boarders to communicate with friends and family as well as undertake necessary research needed for school life.
Evening activities are fun and varied with lots of different things to do once the school day is over. Our boy boarders have access to our fantastic facilities during evenings and weekends. The have the use of the swimming pool, gym, indoor sports hall, AstroTurf, tennis courts or the library and ICT rooms, though access to the Sports Hall from 6.00am to 9.30pm seems to be the biggest hit of all. The boys, quite simply, love it!
The walls throughout the house are brightened up by an array of colourful pictures and photos of all the boys. Notice boards show our impressive range of both daily and weekend activities, as well as the customary ‘Useful Information’. Photographs of boarding staff are displayed on the wall outside the boarding office along with key staff associated with boarding such as the on-site nurses, counsellors and EAL tutors.
Our boarders include a range of nationalities from the UK and across the world. We are proud of our multi-cultural community where the diversity creates a special and unique atmosphere in which the boys are able to learn how to cope with life away from home. Our male boarding staff live in flats in the house ensuring safety and security within the Boys Boarding is at always at the top of our agenda.
Come and join us in Boys Boarding at BCS. Friendships that will last a life time will be made as well as memories that will be guaranteed never to be forgotten!
