Read Fee Conditions

Full Boarding

Full boarders have a dedicated bed space and personal storage space in Blake (Year 7), one of the senior boarding houses (Years 8-12) or Nelson (Year 13) as appropriate. The fee includes all meals, overnight accommodation, 24-hour care by residential house staff, health care and laundry.

Weekly Boarding

Weekly boarders are allocated a dedicated bed space and personal storage space in Blake (Year 7), one of the senior boarding houses (Years 8-12) or Nelson (Year 13) as appropriate. Weekly boarding includes overnight stays from Sunday to Friday inclusive. Pupils may leave after school commitments on Saturday afternoon and may return on Sunday evening or Monday morning. Weekly boarders may stay overnight on a Saturday up to three times per term, which will be charged at £50 per night. If it is likely that more Saturday night stays will be required, the full boarding option should be selected.

3-Night Boarding

3-night boarding is available in Blake, Cornwallis, Howe and Nelson, subject to space being available. This includes three regular overnight stays per week from Sunday to Friday. Overnight stays on a Saturday night may be available on request but are subject to an additional charge of £50 per night and limited to three nights per term. 3-night boarders will be guaranteed three overnight stays per week but not a permanent bed space or storage for belongings.

Boarding Bundle

The Boarding Bundle is available to parents of day pupils or 3-night boarders who want to take advantage of the flexibility of buying units of 15 nights purchased in advance for use at any time but only on up to three Saturday nights per term and beds are subject to availability. Unused nights can also be rolled over to the subsequent term but are not refundable. Pupils in Years 8 to 12 using Boarding Bundle nights will be allocated a bed in Cornwallis or Howe on the nights they are boarding, subject to availability. The option is also available in Blake and Nelson subject to availability.

The cost of a 15-night Boarding Bundle is £1,000 and can be purchased via the Finance Department at finance@royalhospitalschool.org a term in advance or by the first week of the term at the latest. A book of boarding passes will be provided and these should be given to the Housemaster or Housemistress on booking the night(s) required. A maximum of three 15-night Boarding Bundles can be purchased per pupil in each academic year.

Ad hoc boarding by special arrangement

Day pupils may also request to stay overnight on an ad hoc basis by special arrangement but this is always subject to space being available in Blake, Cornwallis, Howe or occasionally in another boarding house. This is strictly limited to ten nights per term (Year 7) and seven nights per term (Years 8-13), and no more than three Saturday nights per term, at a cost of £50 (Year 7) or £75 (Years 8-13) per night. If it is likely that more than this number of overnight stays will be required each term, the 3-night boarding option or Boarding Bundles should be purchased.

Where possible a week’s notice should be given to ensure adequate planning of room and bed allocations. We recognise that this may not always be possible and we will always try to accommodate your requests. Parents should also keep us informed of any change of plan with regard to staying overnight.
