Meet Lorca - Full Time Boarder

Hello, my name is Lorca and I started boarding in September 2021. I think the best thing about boarding is that it is like a big sleepover every day and also on the weekends. On the weekends we do loads of fun activities like Inflataspace, Laser Tag, mini-golf, pool parties, Mexican madness… 

Wednesdays are the best because we get tuck and free time. During free time I usually hang out with my friends chatting and playing games. 

My dorm is very big, and I decorated my area with party lights, postcards and photographs of family. My dorm also won the Christmas decorations competition because everybody made something, we had paper snowflakes, bunting, and a good and naughty list. I have really enjoyed Gappy games, It's so much fun and every day is a different game, we play dodgeball, basketball, hide-and-seek, charades and lots more.

Meet Ella - Flexi Boarder

I started boarding at Mowden in 2020 and everyone welcomed me so warmly. 

I really like being able to wake up in the morning and all my friends are there. I also love being able to look after the younger years and sometimes even older years. There are many activities to do at nighttime such as "boarding house" where we do crafts, play games, and it is very, very fun. 

The boarding house really feels like home. It is warm and has a beautiful feeling of calm. The dorms are very cosy and they are where you make the most memories with your friends. 

It is completely normal to feel homesick but you are part of a group of amazing boarding staff to help you and comfort you.

Meet Hugo - Weekly Boarder

I started boarding at Mowden Hall School September 2018 and am now a boarding prefect for my year. A boarding prefect is someone who is selected by the Head and they help make decisions to make the boarding house even nicer and even better! I really like being able to spend more time with my friends and the fun activities that are put on every night. When it is sunny in the evenings I really like being outside playing sports but if it is raining outside and very cold I would prefer to either go in the gym and play a sport in there or chill out in the Year 7 common room . My dorm is really nice and full of my friends.
