Boarding at Gosfield provides a unique service for pupils in Year 7 and up who wish to board. There are also opportunities for Occasional Boarding as well and Day Boarding.
Our boarding houses are situated upstairs in the main house and are based around small, shared bedrooms rather than dormitories. Boarders at Gosfield will join a community that celebrates traditional values while embracing tolerance and understanding.
Every day provides stimulating and challenging experiences. Boarders engage in a wide variety of activities that when coupled with high academic expectations, provides an outstanding richness and diversity that only boarding can deliver.
Young people face increasing pressure to compete for top universities and rewarding careers. Academic qualifications alone are not sufficient to guarantee success in the wider world. Maturity, confidence, versatility, self-motivation and self-discipline are all qualities needed to achieve their potential and boarding at Gosfield provides a unique environment to develop these qualities. Our boarders are confident, study hard, enjoy a host of organised experiences and play a positive, active part in school life.
Our caring and secure environment is maintained by all staff involved in the boarders’ welfare. Whether it is House Parents or the catering staff, all are encouraged to give guidance and support. Younger boarders flourish in the homely atmosphere and our older students are excellent role models. All our boarders receive the individual attention they need from the House staff and mature rapidly in such a unique atmosphere. They invariably develop very close and lasting friendships and show the ability to take on growing responsibilities both within the Boarding House and in the wider school community, enhancing and discovering new talents at the same time.
Our Boarding Houses offer modern amenities with well appointed bedrooms. Sixth Form Boarders have the choice of either double or single rooms, whilst younger boarders share larger rooms. There’s a relaxing common room with flat screen digital TV and DVD, a cafeteria for snacks, supervised use of the school’s study areas, IT suites and extensive grounds, all-weather sports field and Sports Hall.
