Accommodation for Overseas or UK boarders
Secondary pupils and Sixth Formers from overseas and the UK can board at Slindon College.
We are compliant with the Boarding Schools Association COVID Safe Charter. This means that we are, and will continue to, comply with all government rules and guidance that keep our pupils safe in light of COVID-19.
Dormitories and study bedrooms are light, airy, comfortable and well-furnished in a modern and practical style. Pupils in years 7-9 live in dormitories that sleep 2-6 boys. We aim to accommodate all our boarders in congenial, compatible company. Year 10 pupils and above have private study bedrooms, offering a greater degree of privacy for independent study, free from distraction. Accommodation includes three recreational rooms to enhance the boarding experience and provide a real home from home.
The Family Room is used by the boarders to relax, socialise, watch TV and just generally socialise. It is also for the weekly Boarding House meetings where staff and boarders can discuss any relevant issues. The Snug is a smaller, cosier space, furnished with sofas, TV and a kitchenette. The Pool Room speaks for itself and is very popular with all our boarders. WiFi, suitably protected, is available throughout the Boarding House. In the evenings and at weekends, the pupils are free to participate in a variety of recreational activities.
Great food to fuel your son
All meals are cooked on site by our fantastic catering staff and are eaten in the Dining Room. The staff sit with the pupils at meal times which enables them to chat informally over the meal. Special dietary requirements for allergies or religious reasons can be met provided we are advised in advance. In such cases our Registrar should be provided with full details so that instruction can be passed to all relevant team members.
