A Flexible Approach
Boarding has radically changed over the past twenty years, as have families. Some of our parents choose boarding knowing that their child will benefit from an all-round education and grow in independence and maturity. For families with one child, boarding provides an extended family of brothers and sisters and a safe environment for individuals to enjoy the company of other young people and learn to think of others.
For others who want to encourage and enable their children to make the most of the opportunities available, yet feel stretched to the limit trying to juggle home, family and work commitments, boarding has provided a happy solution.
In some cases it is the pupils themselves who have opted to board, often prompted by preparation for public examinations. Boarding during the week means they can take advantage of the structured study environment and access to resources.
At Bishop's Stortford College, we aim to be as flexible as possible within our available capacity.
