Year 9 Boarding

An exciting area of development at King's is the way we support boarding students to find their feet and begin their College career.

In 2016, we are planning to launch a special transition programme for Year 9 Boarders to help them get the best start at this crucial stage of their education.  It’s all about enabling them to build a strong foundation, prepare for the years ahead and realise their full potential.

The cornerstone of this programme, a dedicated Year 9 Boarding House, will provide the environment and care students need to really get to know the school, each other and themselves.  Within this context, each child will be provided with additional specialised academic tuition and mentoring.  The Year 9 Boarding House will be a community where every student is welcomed, supported and made to feel completely at home.

Every Year 9 Boarder will still be part of his allocated House for all inter-House activities such as athletics, swimming sports and House Music.  In Year 10, they will move into their allocated House full-time.
