Two Boys Smiling in Red & Blue Robes

Our Boarding School Principle:

Boarding at Orwell Park seeks to develop the whole pupil, enabling them to develop confidence, independence, and an inclusive community spirit.  In line with our whole school principles, we offer pupils facilities and activities which enhance social skills, cultural awareness, and respect for others.  In an environment which celebrates the differences between pupils, the key life skills of resilience, self-motivation and responsibility are absorbed and developed.

In order to give full effect to these principles, pupils are cared for by a team of qualified, experienced and dedicated professionals.  Their collective aim is to maintain a boarding house in which all children will be healthy, clean, well-fed and well-rested.  A stimulating environment will aim to develop physical and emotional strength, as well as the opportunity to create enduring friendships.

Our boarding school proudly welcomes students from the Suffolk & Greater London areas for full, weekly, and flexi boarding.
