Boarding Senior Boarding
Kirby House welcomes boarders from ages 7 to 13 into its modern, spacious dormitories which all have their own bathrooms. ur older children (Years 7 and 8) have a separate section to the Junior Boarders and are looked after by the Kirby Boarding Housemaster. Children have plenty of space to call their own, and can personalise that space to make it feel just like home. Despite being bright, light and airy the dormitories are cosy and warm, providing a wonderful place of relaxation and rest. A dedicated social area offers many opportunities for fun in the evenings and at weekends. Boarders also enjoy using the Sports Centre and Swimming Pool, along with regular trips into town. They are never short of friends, and mobile phone contact and regular ‘exeat’ weekends mean that parents never feel far away. O
We recognise that our older pupils need more private space in which to live and work, so senior pupils start in 4-bed dorms, leading to double or single rooms as they get older.
ll of our boarding rooms are en-suite. There are kitchens and tuck shops in each House so that
hungry pupils can prepare snacks between meals, after sports matches and at weekends. House Parents and their families live in accommodation within each Boarding House as well as a Resident Tutor. Members of staff are available at all times and the School also has an on-site Medical Centre run by qualified nursing staff, who provide cover throughout term-time for all pupils. All pupils have access to the College IT network and wireless internet access (with suitable controls) to keep in touch with family and friends back home.
Boarding at St Lawrence College is like having a second family. I love it here.”
