Boarding Prep School for Modern Families

Boarding is at the heart of our thriving Dragon community and with a wide range of boarding options available,  there’s something to suit every family. Our boarders are drawn from local, national and international backgrounds and they live with dedicated Houseparents in one of our ten family-style boarding houses.

The benefits of boarding at Prep School continue to be well recognised and children gain a sense of independence and personal responsibility. They learn organisational and social skills, partake in many extra-curricular activities and, through this experience, they develop strong friendships for life. Prep school boarding is also an extremely valuable experience for any child who may be considering boarding at their senior school and the time saved in commuting provides the opportunity for further academic, creative or sporting pursuits.

Dragon boarders are in frequent and easy touch with their families. They maintain regular communication through phone, email, Skype, FaceTime and letter writing – though as they are so busy having fun, they sometimes have to be prompted! Houseparents are the main link between School and home and communicate regularly with boarders’ parents. Especially sensitive to the needs of younger and first-time boarders, Houseparents are also regularly in touch with the children throughout the day.

She made incredible friends, lifelong bonds and learnt empathy, sympathy and the ability to compromise.
