What is it like to board at St Clare’s?

by on 29/06/2017

We have 15 boarding houses for students age 15-17+ all just a short walk from the main college buildings. Students live in single sex houses and are cared for by a warden who lives in the house. Each bedroom is large and comfortable and each house has a common room for the students with facilities to make their own drinks and snacks.

House rules reflect the approach we have a balance for giving appropriate freedom to students of different ages and to encourage responsible behaviour.

Students can choose to eat in the college dining room or in the Sugar House café.
