LIFE-CHANGING BOARDING EXPERIENCE

When students join our vibrant boarding community, they immediately become part of the Claremont family and go on to forge what often become life-long friendships, across different cultures and age groups.

OUTSTANDING PASTORAL CARE

Francoise Armstrong is Claremont’s Assistant Head and our Director of Boarding. For all boarders, Ms. Armstrong is the link between home and school, providing advice, help and support for all boarding students however big or small their needs are.

CO-CURRICULAR PROGRAMME

The Co-Curricular Programme is designed to enrich the students experience by developing critical thinking and skill-based learning that inspire Leadership, Creativity and Team Spirit. It encourages students to step into unfamiliar territory and try something completely new.

WEEKEND ACTIVITIES

Our weekend activity programme gives students plenty of opportunity to socialise, immerse themselves in village life and experience a wide range of cultural trips and activities in cities further afield to include London. Boarders have access to the extensive sporting facilities that our school provides.

BOARDING HOUSES - LOCATION

Both of our boarding houses are located off campus, as we believe it is vital for the students to have a break from school. Close enough to get to school in under 15 minutes, but far away enough for it to feel like you’re really going “home” after a happy day “at work”.

Pyke House

Pyke House is our Girls and Junior Boarding House and is located in the heart of the historic village of Battle in East Sussex. It has great shops, a warm and welcoming community feel and is just a 5 minutes walk from the mainline station into London.

Clyde House

Clyde House accommodates boys from Year 9 to Year 13. It is a spacious and airy building with a range of private rooms, en-suite facilities and a lovely big garden. The house is within walking distance to local shops and a large supermarket, yet just 3 miles away from the seaside.
