Mr Jack and Mrs Jessica Avery joined The Prep as Boarding Houseparents this year and have sought to continue and develop the school’s long tradition of a fun, supportive and home-from-home boarding experience.

Outside of school hours, the school becomes the boarders’ playground, with regular games of spotlight, tennis, football and time in the pool in the evenings and throughout the weekend. This is all supported by an itinerary of regular trips to local attractions and destinations.

Lower and Middle School pupils have increasingly been taking advantage of flexi-boarding as they want to be a part of the boarding community and the activities on offer. Upper School families have also increasingly engaged with full boarding as the perfect preparation for moving to boarding at College. It really has been a full House.

The Prep Boarding House itself has had a makeover during the past 12 months, and there is more exciting news on the horizon. Watch this space in the coming year, to find out more!
