* Weekly boarders will be allocated a dedicated bed space in Blake, a senior boarding house or Nelson as appropriate. Weekly boarding includes overnight stays from Sunday to Friday inclusive. Pupils may leave after school commitments on Saturday afternoon and should return in time for Chapel on a Sunday evening.

On ‘Quiet Weekends’, weekly boarders may return by 08:10 on Monday morning. Weekly boarders may stay overnight on a Saturday up to 3 times per term, which will be charged on a per night basis. If it is likely that more Saturday night stays will be required, the full boarding option should be selected.

^ 3-Night Boarding is available in Blake, Cornwallis, the senior girls’ boarding houses and in Nelson, subject to space being available. 3-Night Boarding includes three regular overnight stays per week from Sunday to Friday. Overnight stays on a Saturday night may be available on request but subject to an additional charge of £40 per night and limited to 3 nights per term. 3-Night Boarders will be guaranteed three overnight stays per week but not a dedicated bed space.

**The day option is available for both boys and girls in Blake, Drake, Raleigh and Nelson and for boys only in Cornwallis. Day pupils should arrive by 08:10 each morning and depart by 18:00. Day pupils may request to stay overnight on occasion subject to space being available but this is limited to 10 nights per term and no more than 3 Saturday nights per term at a cost of £40 per night. If it is likely that more than this number of overnight stays will be required each term, the 3-Night Boarding option should be selected.
