The Boarding Experience

Holyport College is more than just a school. It is a close-knit community of students, staff and their families that work together to develop the lives of young people and enrich their futures.

With more than 40% of our students living on site, boarding is at the heart of the College community and reflects its values and ethos. The modern boarding model that we provide seeks to replicate the family atmosphere of a home where relationships are familiar in nature and the environment relaxed and stable.

This caring and nurturing environment builds the confidence of boarders and encourages them to develop new skills and to go outside of their comfort zones. Boarding provides opportunities that open doors, turn interests into passions and set futures in motion.

We believe that balance is the key to a happy and successful education. We hope that all boarders will aspire to academic success. At the same time, they should balance their time with activities and events that enrich their mind and boost their physical and mental health. We also believe it is important for young people to socialise.
