Cothill House

Chandlings (Year 8)

Cothill provides something unique in the prep school world; a year 8 boarding house for 50+ set three miles away from the main school in 82 beautiful acres within the grounds of our sister school, Chandlings, where boys can really be boys.

Chandlings is a halfway house between prep school and public school, where boys are encouraged to develop the indispensable life skills of organisation, teamwork and responsibility, within a relaxed and supportive family environment.

The boys spend every evening at Chandlings, and all day on Sundays, taking full advantage of the facilities including an indoor swimming pool, sports hall, 9 hole golf course, air hockey table and television room full of beanbags, to name but a few. Fun activities are run in the evening by the house staff and there is a range of trips on offer every Sunday.

Year 8 is obviously a crucial year, so the boys are encouraged to make the most of the library, and staff run revision sessions every evening in the build-up to C.E.. The whole ethos of Chandlings is achieving a balance of work and play and the boys leaving us well-prepared and eager for the challenges ahead.
