In Earle House, we know that the early years of a boy’s life will have a lasting impact, so we provide the care and resources for our boys to flourish.
We understand the value of leisure time, and so have developed a full and varied programme for the boys which sit alongside their academic programme. There is always an activity to keep a boy busy in Earle House: from swimming and football, cookery and craft, to music practice and the odd game of hide-and-seek.
The imaginations of the boys in Earle House provide more fun than any computer ever could and the friendships created will last a lifetime. It is the strong sense of family in this junior boarding house that makes the boarders feel so welcome and at home.

Full BoardingFull Boarding
The majority of boarders at New Hall are full boarders, staying at school throughout the term and going home for exeat weekends, half term breaks and school holidays. . With structure and routine, they have every opportunity to achieve their potential, both academically and socially. A full programme of co-curricular and house activities means that there is always something to do.
Weekly BoardingWeekly Boarding
Freed from a daily school journey, Earle weekly boarders can concentrate on academic study while having extra time to invest in their co-curricular interests and talents, such as music, sport or drama. Weekly boarders may either depart on Fridays or remain for Saturday activities. Most weekly boarders choose to return on Sunday evenings, although they may return on Monday mornings if they prefer.
Students who flexi-board one, two or three nights per week in Earle are often active in many aspects of school life. They benefit from the ability to stay at New Hall with friends after a day of lessons, sport, music and other activities.
