Boarding at Buckswood provides a safe and secure environment for the personal and academic development of each boarding student whilst ensuring their health and wellbeing. The Buckswood ethos aims to reflect, as far as possible within a communal environment, the best values of family life. The boarding experience encourages tolerance, respect for others, kindness, spiritual and moral awareness, personal development, general welfare and self-discipline. It develops independence, strength and the ability within the individual to function as part of a team.
Boarding accommodation is spread over the campus and each House is proud of its individual character, from the 15th Century School House complete with oak beams and fire places, the girls’ Victorian manor Guestling Hall, the country cottages of Oaks House, or the modern lodges of Rowling, Milne and Kipling: each with a House Tutor and dedicated staff who are personally responsible for each and every boarder in their care.
