Open Morning

Boarding

Those who have experienced boarding at New Hall School know that they have been part of something special. Each House has its own distinct character, staff tailor the experience to the needs of the children in their care and the children themselves have a significant input into how their Houses are run. All of the Boarding Houses at New Hall are part of the main building complex, therefore boarding is both literally and metaphorically at the heart of the School.

“The supportive ethos experienced in the boarding houses, where boarders’ progress and development are frequently monitored, also plays a major role in developing personal qualities” – ISI inspection report, October 2016

Our team of boarding staff is committed to providing a happy, settled and safe family environment for every child, where confidence, intellectual curiosity and independence are fostered. In joining one of our Boarding Houses, your son or daughter will have access to New Hall’s full range of facilities and resources, including additional academic support from specialist staff. This provides the platform for them to excel in their academic studies, to enjoy a wide range of activities and to develop the personal skills and characteristics essential for future success.

Boarding is often the bedrock for life-long friendships and one of the most important benefits is the variety of social interaction. Our staff often comment on the impromptu conversations with boarders during an evening as being a highlight of their working week. On a daily basis, boarders have the opportunity to interact with their own peer group, those older and younger than them, different genders and adults. Of particular significance is the cultural diversity within the Houses.

“The many different nationalities in the boarding houses richly enhance the experience of all pupils” ISI inspection report, October 2016

The facilities in each House are also exceptional. New Hall is distinctive in offering single study bedrooms from Year 10. All rooms are well-equipped with modern furnishings, WiFi access and a personal desk and noticeboard. The communal spaces are hives of activity both at lunchtime and in the evenings (once homework is complete, of course!). Whether your child enjoys table tennis, pool, chess, board games, cards or games consoles, there is sure to be something to entice them to get involved with their friends.

New Hall School is an inspirational educational setting where dreams and aspirations are nurtured; what better way to receive the full benefits of this than as a boarder. Take a look at some of the boarding activities on each house’s dedicated social media accounts and the boarding activities gallery.
