Why Board?

Always having friends around and taking part in clubs and activities together strengthens your child's friendships. Living together with their peers helps them to develop confidence, camaraderie, maturity and self-reliance in a safe and nurturing environment, leading to an enhanced level of independence as they make the transition to senior school.
