About

The Claremont Boarding House recognises that each child is an individual, therefore our mission is to develop young men and women with active and creative minds, a sense of understanding and compassion for others and the courage to act on their beliefs. We stress the total development of each child: spiritual, linguistic, logical, moral, social, personal, cultural and physical.

At Claremont Boarding House we endeavour to create a culture that encourages children to learn with freedom and embrace the responsibility afforded to them whenever possible. Our aim is to ensure boarding is at the very heart of the school, and that boarders benefit from the vast array of clubs and opportunities on offer at Claremont School.

The Claremont Boarding House recognises that each child is an individual; therefore our mission is to develop young men and women with active and creative minds, a sense of understanding and compassion for others and the courage to act on their beliefs. Our school and Boarding House aim to nurture and develop talents that lie within each student.

Our philosophy is very simple: we want a community where children are happy, safe, enjoying and achieving. This will allow them to develop and grow at their own pace in an environment where respect and consideration are held in high esteem

The boarders home is off-site situated midway between the prep school and senior school and this therefore allows them the luxury to go home once the school day has finished like all other day pupils.

The comfort and care of our students is of paramount importance and our boarding house is designed with this very much in mind. Our building has a secure “fob” entry system which operates via a fob given to each student. There are boys and girls sides to the house, with all the facilities and features you would expect from a leading 21st century school.
