Welcome to Boarding

Welcome to the Boarding Community here at Ratcliffe College. Boarding really is at the heart of the school, both physically and metaphorically, and we are proud to have a happy, positive and friendly boarding houses which the students consider a second home.

Boarding is about caring for one another, independence, resilience, joy, fun and about being a part of a supportive family where each and every individual feels secure and special. We celebrate a diverse community in boarding here at Ratcliffe, enriched by a wealth of different cultures and experiences. The layout of the rooms enables the pupils in the younger years to interact alongside the older pupils and this enhances the family feel in the community.

All the boarding staff are approachable and enjoy positive relationships with the students in their care. We genuinely hope that you enjoy your time as a boarder and valued member of the school community here at Ratcliffe College.
