Central to the ethos of life at Mowden Hall School is the boarding tradition, and Mowden has a vibrant boarding community. Over three-quarters of the children in the Prep School board in some capacity. However, there is no compulsion to board at Mowden.
Children can be Day Pupils, Flexi Boarders, Weekly Boarders or Full Boarders. Boarding options start in Year 3, and by the end of Year 6, lots of children choose to board many nights of the week. Children may wish to transfer from being day pupils to boarders, and can do so at any stage. There is provision for Flexi Boarding on a nightly basis, which can prove to be a useful introduction to boarding for some children.
Our committed and caring team are all familiar faces for our boarding children. With their encouragement, children feel at home and contribute to house life through joining in, enjoying being with their friends, eating and sleeping well and learning to manage and organise themselves. All alongside working hard and making the most of all that is on offer.
We welcome a small number of international boarders each year and they greatly enhance the life of the boarding houses. More details on joining us as an international boarder can be found here.
- Flexi: 2-4 nights
- Weekly: 5 nights
- Full: 7 nights
Boarding is very popular and does need to be booked in advance and committed to on a termly basis. However, it may be possible to board on the occasional night to support family commitments, so please do contact the boarding team if required.
