Boarding Life and Transport

Boarding Life including transport

Transport and travel arrangements

When coming to school at the beginning of a new school year you should aim to arrive between 10.00 a.m. and 8.00 p.m. If you know that you will be arriving outside these times you must let the House Staff know well in advance so that special arrangements can be made.

At all other times, such as the beginning of term and the end of half-term breaks, you should aim to return to houses between 6.00 p.m. and 8.00 p.m. Boarding Houses will not normally be open before these times. Earlier arrival times should be arranged directly with the House Staff concerned.

The half term / end of term arrangements form must be completed by Parents / Guardians and returned to House Staff or the Boarding Administrator at least three weeks before the end of each term / half term.

The Boarding Administrator will organise airport transfers for students needing travel by air. Transfers to Manchester and Leeds Bradford airports are arranged for students and details will be given directly to you.

Transport to and from the airport is included in the overseas boarding fee, but this will only be provided free of charge for students who fly at set times at the start and end of each half term, and submit their transport requests at least three weeks before the end of each term / half term. Please contact the Boarding Administrator for further details.
