Boarding applications are invited from any pupil from Year 7 upwards with British passports, leave to remain in the UK, or are children of parents with BNO passports who live in the UK . Students only need to pay boarding fees as tuition is free.
All boarding applicants are made directly to the School and parents must complete two application forms. Pupils in Years 7-11 must complete a Royal School Senior Application Form and a Boarding Supplementary Information Form and submit them together to The Royal. Students in Year 12 must complete a Royal School Sixth Form Application and a Boarding Supplementary Information Form and submit them together to The Royal.
The Boarding Schools Association (BSA), of which The Royal School is a member, has published a COVID-Safe Charter. The Royal is proud to announce that we are adopting the Charter and are working to ensure robust and safe guidelines for our boarders to return to school.
The Charter is a voluntary code which schools can adhere to and aims to give confidence to everyone that the School is following all appropriate measures to make the boarding environment safe for pupils and staff.
The Royal will continue to ensure the safety of our community and fully supports the measures outlined in the Charter. We want to make the process of returning or joining the school as easy and safe as possible.
The Charter can be found here.
Flexibility – we have packages available for flexi boarding which might suit busy families where both parents work late or where parents may want some time away.
3 night stays mid-week for £135
3 night weekend stay which includes an activity for £155
Single night £55
Routine – structured evenings including a supervised prep, evening activities and a good bedtime routine ensuring our boarders are well rested for the next day.
Enrichment – our boarding houses are incredibly diverse and act as an opportunity for boarders to experience cultures from all around the world. The nurturing environment helps them develop socially and helps prepare them for life after school.
Family – We have a strong family ethos here at The Royal School, strengthened by our fantastic and experienced staff and their own families including our much-loved Harry (4) and Thomas (1) who have all the boarders in the palm of their hands.
