Types of Boarding
Boarding is an integral part of life at Hampshire Collegiate School and we offer a number of different boarding options to meet the needs of our families across the UK and international. While full boarding offers full wrap around care during term time, our weekly and flexi-boarding options give parents and pupils the best of both worlds.
This provides a home-from-home environment in which our British and international boarders live together as one family, seven days a week. After a busy week of study, our boarders enjoy a weekend programme with the boarding family that is full of cultural, fun and exciting activities, trips and events.
Weekly boarders are with us from Sunday night or Monday morning through to Friday afternoon, providing our students with the benefit of staying at school during the week and spending time at home with their families at the weekends.
This is a popular option for busy working families, students who are involved in school activities that require an early start and those who have a long journey to and from school. It is also very popular in the lead up to exams, when some of our students benefit from structured evenings and the supportive environment that our boarding family can offer in what can be very stressful times. Many of our flexi boarders love staying with us so much that they become weekly or full time boarders.
