Boarding Options - Ratcliffe College

Boarding Options

There are a variety of boarding options to suit your needs:

Full Boarding – Full boarders stay seven nights a week.  There are no exempt weekends so full boarders can stay every night throughout the term.  This does not mean, however, that you can’t go out and visit friends and family, as long as all the permissions are granted.  Most of our boarders are full time boarders.

Weekly Boarding – Weekly boarders can stay for five nights a week.  You can choose to come in on a Sunday or a Monday.  For those playing school fixtures on a Saturday, it is good to stay on a Friday night so that you are in school on Saturday morning.

Flexi Boarding – Flexi boarders stay for two or three nights a week allowing day pupils to benefit from the boarding experience here at school.

Casual Boarding – Casual boarders come and stay when they need to.  They can stay for one night or several, booking in through the main reception at school.  Beds are limited though so it is worthwhile booking in in advance.


If you are interested in the flexible boarding options we have on offer, why not visit us on our next Open Day or book a private visit? You can also see our Fees and Admissions pages, or contact us to ask any questions on boarding.
