The boarding experience

The boarding experience

We want every pupil to enjoy boarding life at Cothill. This is why we now also offer day or 'a bit of both' places in the younger years when new joiners can settle into Cothill at a pace that suits them. It usually doesn't take long before they beg their parents to let them join all their boarding friends! 

Watch our short film below to find out a bit about what makes life at Cothill so special. The links at the bottom of the page will take you to some more detailed information about life as a boarder for our different age groups.

Year 4 is all about getting to grips with boarding to set the foundations for future success and happiness. Tidy dorms for about eight boys, adorned with all the usual football paraphanalia, house years 4, 5, 6 and 7 in the main school and year 8s in Bowlers – a cosy outpost across the games field where, according to parents, boys feel ‘terribly grown up.’
