Boarding Principles and Practice
The aim of Boarding at the Stamford Endowed Schools is to provide a safe and secure environment
for the personal and academic development of each boarding student. The ethos aims to reflect, as far as
is possible in a communal environment, the best values of family life. The Boarding experience encourages tolerance, respect for others, kindness, spiritual and moral awareness and self-discipline. It develops independence and the strength and ability of the individual to function as part of a team.
Boarding pupils are offered places in accordance with the academic admission criteria for their age and school and the availability of spaces within the Boarding House.
The Schools offer full boarding, Weekly boarding, 3 night boarding, and flexi-boarding for Junior School pupils and Y7 & Y8 pupils, if appropriate space is available.
All full boarders attend Chapel at Stamford School each Sunday morning. Once a term there is an evening service, which the whole boarding community attend. Students of other faiths are given the opportunity to attend services of that denomination wherever possible.
Regular assemblies are held at each school, and attendance at other services for particular festivals often takes place.
