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.
