There is a thriving and very happy boarding community at Port Regis. We believe that boarding is a fantastic experience that helps children to develop independence and gain confidence, whilst building life-long friendships. The majority of our pupils will enjoy some form of boarding here before they leave for their senior schools, whether that be full, weekly or occasional.
We strive to ensure our boarders are safe, happy and engaged in all their day to day activities – and we also like to have a lot of fun along the way. In each of our four boarding houses we have a highly talented and committed team of houseparents, assistant houseparents and gap year staff, all focused on the very highest standards of care. We make sure that, when the academic day is done, the children spend time with their friends and relax.
Every weekend is worth staying in school for, with regular special themed events, discos, games, competitions, outings and opportunities to do something different. Unlike most boarding prep schools, we never close at weekends or exeats, something that our overseas and military parents in particular appreciate.
"Boarders have excellent standards of personal development. They are confident, articulate and courteous and the core values of the school are central to their behaviour. The relationships between boarders and the staff are a key strength of the school. Houseparents and other boarding staff take a genuine interest in the well-being of the boarders."
