Weekly boarding is available for all pupils and there is a set rate for those who opt for this in Year 7, 8 and 9. Pupils in Year 10 and above can be weekly boarders but will pay the full boarding rate. Weekly boarders can be dropped off at school on Sunday night or Monday morning and may be collected on Friday evening or on Saturday after fixtures or the morning enrichment programme.

Full Boarding

Full boarders may stay at school throughout each term and will go home for Exeat weekends and Half Term holidays. Full boarders do have the opportunity to go home, to Guardians or stay with friends on evenings or weekends. They may also attend regular off-site activities such as football training and horse riding.

Flexi and Occasional Boarding

Occasional Boarding offers an ad hoc overnight stay for day pupils on just a few nights per term. This option provides families with the opportunity to book last-minute stays at school providing greater flexibility. 

Our Flexi Boarding packages offer pupils a regular one, two or three night stay on the same nights each week throughout the term. The nights don't have to be consecutive and Flexi Boarders take priority over Occasional Boarders should there be a shortage of space on any given night.

Rendcomb College Campus

A Naturally Inspiring Setting

All of our boarding houses have stunning views over the 230 acres of Cotswold countryside that Rendcomb College is situated within. Whether it be our forest, sports fields, deer park or ancient orchard, boarders have an inspiring setting to live, learn and grow up. 

With such vast grounds to explore, houseparents regularly organise activities such as laser tag, orienteering, a night-time walk or campfire and sports during the evenings and weekends. Pupils can also ask to use the sports facilities such as the gym or tennis courts in their down time.
