Boarding Options

Boarding is available to all children in the Preparatory School (from Year 3 to Year 8).  Roughly fifty five per cent of children board on a flexible, weekly or full time basis, to suit individual children and their families’ needs. 

Weekly boardingWeekly boarders return home after Saturday school/Saturday sporting fixtures and return to school each Monday morning.
Full time boardingOur full time boarders board throughout the week and at weekends, with the exception of exeats. Weekend boarding encompasses a vast range of activities and visits as well as the much loved traditions of a Sunday full English Breakfast and Roast Supper.
Flexi boardingFlexi boarding can be booked termly and offers the option of boarding on specific nights each week. Wherever possible, we try to accommodate last minute or occasional requests to board, but to secure a place for your child for a particular night or nights of the week, it is advisable to pre-book for the term.

We are delighted to welcome families from across the UK and overseas to our boarding community, as well as local families.  

Overseas families considering boarding at S. Anselm’s can find further useful information here.

To assist with the transport arrangements at the start and end of school holidays and exeats, our School Office is happy to assist with taxi/private transfers to or from the airport or railway station, as needed.  Families within Derbyshire are also able to draw on our extensive school minibus service.
