The Boarding Houses & their Staff

The Boarding Houses

Here at Ratcliffe we welcome all students to one big boarding community, made up of staff and students from all over the world.  We are one big family and the Housemaster and Housemistress work together to ensure that all the boys’ and girls’ needs are met throughout the year.  Together we go on many exciting trips at the weekend, socialise in the communal areas of the school, study alongside one another in the evening, enjoy activities together throughout the week and enjoy moments of communal reflection in the evening.

The Girls’ House is situated on one side of the main building and the Boy’s House is on the other.  In each of the houses we have wonderful facilities to make your boarding house feel like a home.  There are supervised kitchens for baking, games consoles for playing on, Sky TV to sit and relax with your friends, study facilities and bedrooms to personalise and make your own.

We have a dedicated team of staff in both houses, all of whom provide that all important pastoral care to help you thrive and make the most of your time as a boarder at Ratcliffe.
