We offer all the advantages of Independent Boarding Schools
Boarders at our school enjoy a supportive and nurturing environment in which they can flourish both personally and academically. They take part in a stimulating variety of Boarding House and Enrichment Activities throughout the week and weekends. That means your child can flourish through a well-rounded school experience which prepares them for higher education and their future aspirations.
- As a boarding school, we are able to limit distractions and encourage participation and social development. Television, gaming and sporting activities are readily available but are carefully managed. As a result, we find that young borders are much more motivated to focus on their social habits and studying.
- Our boarders are prepared for many domestic and day-to-day tasks that mainstream education does not have the time to teach. We encourage our pupils to act independently and proactively whilst developing key time management and organisational skills.
- Our boarding school students develop exceptionally good relationships with their teaching and house staff. That makes it easier to approach teaching and pastoral staff if they require extra support either personally or academically.
Slindon College fosters a strong community spirit in our pupils, especially in our boarders. The boys learn and grow throughout their studies, supplemented with a variety of activities and access to our additional support teams when needed. When pupils leave Slindon College, they have gained skills that develop self-confidence and a well-rounded education that will be of benefit for the rest of their lives.
Accommodation in Slindon College
It goes without saying that housing at boarding school is extremely important. Our accommodation excels in all respects and provides our pupils with a welcoming and homely environment where they can relax and feel comfortable.
Our accommodation is modern and homely with a range of different sized rooms, sleeping 1 - 4-6 depending on preference. There are also three recreational rooms for boarders to enjoy after school and on the weekends: The Family Room, The Snug and The Pool Room.
Our wonderful catering department provides home-cooked meals for our pupils to enjoy in the dining room. With our staff, joining boarders and pupils at meal times, pupils enjoy a varied meal plan that can cater to speciality dietary requirements.
Our dedicated boarding staff are on-hand to provide 24/7 care and support to our boarders, so there is always someone available to talk to about school work, extracurricular and any other concerns.

A boarding school for boys within the Sussex countryside
With our caring and inclusive environment, excellent teaching standards and additional support facilities, Slindon College is a home away from home for many of our boys.
Our ISI residential inspection recognised our strong teaching standards and took note of how polite and respectful our pupils are to adults and their peers. Please find a copy of our most recent ISI inspection here. Our boarding school welcomes pupils with social anxiety and associated needs, looking for additional teaching support that mainstream education providers may be unable to offer.
