Flexi Boarding

One of the many benefits of being part of Talbot Heath School is the option of Flexible Boarding.  We offer an environment where your daughter already feels safe and happy. Giving you the option to choose from regular fixed days or ‘one off’ overnight stays on an ad-hoc basis to fit in with juggling family life – or those unexpected moments!

Flexi boarding is currently offered from Y7, there are options for staying in a cosy 6 bed dorm; most popular with Y7 and 8’s and we have double and single rooms which are favoured by the older pupils.

The general routine for flexi boarders is to arrive at the end of the school day and start off with ‘prep’ so homework is sorted. This is followed by a delicious supper in the boarding dining room; a sociable time – like a family meal with lots of chatter! Every evening we offer a great activity such as craft, baking, Wii or board games. There is always a warm inclusive atmosphere, pupils can join in or take time out to do their own thing. Then it is time to snuggle down for a good nights sleep! We offer a home from home.

In the morning pupils enjoy breakfast together, with cooked and continental options offering the perfect start to the school day. Already being at school with no school run eases pupils into their studies in a relaxed manner.

On weekends pick up is 12 noon so parents can enjoy a lie in too!

How could flexi boarding help your family?

  • Exam season, with our excellent pastoral care in place, the boarding house is an ideal place for your daughter to concentrate on revising. With our dedicated prep room and all meals taken care of, plus no school runs, there is generally more time and less distractions for your daughter to immerse herself in her studies.
  • Early morning sport training. Swim & Tennis Academy parents are often grateful for not having to do the early starts that often go hand in hand with high level training!
  • Holidays. Sometimes parents need a little time away. We will care for your daughter for a night, a weekend, maybe a week or two, they will enjoy their own mini break!
  • Just for fun! Why not book your daughter in with a TH friend to experience flexi boarding together, like a sleepover at school!
  • Emergencies. Sometimes families just need some help and fast! In the unfortunate situation where a parent or carer has a medical or family emergency, turn to TH, we can care for your daughter keeping her environment stable and calm.
