Boarding Life

Forget what preconceptions you might have about boarding – it’s so much more than just a practical solution to a logistical problem.

Boarding at Headington is stimulating, fun and will enrich your education as you develops friendships for life.

To meet the needs of all families, we welcome girls on a full, weekly, half-weekly or occasional basis. All our boarding houses provide girls with a safe, comfortable home from home.

Losing the commute means more time at the beginning and end of the day and at weekends, allowing boarders to immerse themselves in the whole Headington experience. From evening sessions in our gym or pool, to special-themed house dinners and treat nights, they can take full advantage of all the School has to offer.

Whichever boarding option you choose, you will enjoy a real sense of belonging as part of our lively, diverse and supportive boarding family.

Boarding has made me a more well-rounded person and changed my experience of the school – I wish I had thought of it before.
