All boys board at Cothill, and boarding lies at the heart of the school's ethos. We believe this not only provides the ideal environment for boys to study to their full potential, but also enables them to take better advantage of the wide range of opportunities on offer and develop stronger friendships with those around them. They develop the skills of living in a community, such as participation and tolerance, become more independent and thrive within the environment.
All boys are under the personal care of the Headmaster and his wife who live in the Main House. The House Parents work closely with the Head Matron, three senior residential matrons, a team of nurses and matron assistants. There is thus always someone to whom a boy can turn, someone who will listen, advise and support.
