Message from the Director of Boarding



For almost a century Churchie has held boarding at the heart of its community. Boarders enjoy access to the Churchie facilities and academic staff for the extended hours that they are at school to enrich their schooling experience.

Staff recognise the challenges that boarders face and enjoy caring for young men. With the right levels of support and guidance from staff, along with the positive relationships that our boys build with their peers, Churchie Boarders develop a strong sense of belonging. With belonging comes a sense of self and good self-esteem. It is only once we have this balance that a young man will fulfil his potential.

Academically our boarders are not only supported by their Housemasters but evening study is supervised by a range of qualified teachers across a number of teaching areas. This means that all boys have the means to access the specific assistance that they need in order to achieve at their best.

Our aim is to provide a high level of care in order for boys to be safe and happy in this environment.
