Day Boarding is hugely popular at the Dragon. It gives pupils the opportunity to get a taste of boarding life, often as a stepping-stone to full boarding. It can be especially helpful for busy, working families to simplify domestic arrangements or to support pupils who would have a long journey into school.
Our younger Day Boarders (Year 4 to Year 6) stay in our bespoke coeducational boarding house on Bardwell Road, which is run by our Heads of Boarding, Mr and Ma Blencowe. Pupils can stay between one and four nights (Monday to Friday) each week, and fix their nights at the beginning of each term. Senior Day Boarders (Years 7 and 8) join the senior boarding houses for their nights in school. Senior Day Boarders stay for three nights each week (Monday to Friday) and fix these nights at the beginning of each term.
