The ethos of our Sixth Form boys’ boarding house, Campion House, is based on the values of trust, loyalty, kindness and respect. The staff of Campion House believe in the fundamental importance of these qualities in the development of the character of our boys.
Boys work hard and learn to organise their time effectively so that they can also relax and enjoy themselves. Popular recreational activities include five-a-side football, seven-a-side rugby, music, art, cookery and the occasional game of Scrabble. Take a look at our boarding gallery page to see some of the activities. Campion boarders undertake their public examinations during their time in the house and, whilst they are encouraged to take responsibility for their own study time, they do so under guidance from the resident academic staff.
Campion House has produced a number of Senior Prefects over recent years and a significant number of successful Oxbridge candidates. We are proud of this and are dedicated to building on this success for many years to come.

- Full boarders have unrivalled access to the School’s facilities, seven days a week throughout term time

- The structure and routine of full boarding at New Hall means students settle very quickly to School life and as a result are well-placed to fulfil their potential across curricular and co-curricular endeavours
Flexible BoardingFlexible Boarding
Flexible Boarding at New Hall
- Flexible boarding is available in Years 3-13
- Flexible boarding is ideally suited for those who live locally or more widely within the Eastern region
- Students can choose to board for 1-6 nights per week (a regular weekly commitment is required for one term at a time)
- Flexible boarding allows students with a longer commute the opportunity to stay at school on the evenings when they have their main co-curricular commitments, which otherwise would have meant a very late return home and difficulties in managing homework deadlines for the following day
- Flexible boarding can be a perfect introduction to boarding for our younger students
- Some flexible boarders return to their House on Sunday evening, although for some a Monday morning return is more convenient
- Flexible boarders are freed from the daily commute, which for some day students can be up to 2 hours or more
- During the time saved, flexible boarders can wake-up later in the morning, enjoy co-curricular activities after school, complete all of their homework and still have time for relaxation and downtime with their friends!
- Flexible boarders may depart for home on a Friday evening or on Saturday following any co-curricular pursuits in which they may be involved, such as dance classes or sports fixtures
