Holmewood has a long history of boarding and believes that the community atmosphere of the school is greatly enhanced by the presence of boarders. Boarders are seen as an integral part of life at school; they represent the heart of the school. We have a dedicated team of boarding staff whose pastoral work is essential to maintaining the smooth running of the boarding community and to enhance the quality of life of the children whilst they are in school.

The boys’ and girls’ dormitories are in the Mansion House on the first floor with excellent views of the Kent and Sussex countryside. Children board with friends from their year groups in dormitories which sleep up to eight. There are three boys’ dormitories and three girls’ dormitories. All dormitories are self-contained with bunk beds and wardrobes and boarders are encouraged to bring photos and posters to decorate their rooms.

The House acts as an extension of the child’s family. It has a warm and welcoming atmosphere which provides a happy and structured environment for boarders. The behaviour of children and staff is based upon kindness, tolerance and respect. Boarding gives children a chance to make even greater use of the school’s extensive facilities and beautiful location. A busy and fun-filled activity programme throughout the whole week gives boarders time to enjoy each other’s company and build relationships that will stand the test of time.

“The kitchen staff are very kind and are very kind and friendly and they know our favourite meals and treats and help us celebrate birthdays”. BOARDER FROM THE UK
“It feels like my second home and one big school family. The boarding house lets you build relationships with different backgrounds, cultures and personalities. We are always there to help each other out whether it’s as simple as tying a shoelace or asking an older pupil for help with homework”. BOARDER FROM NIGERIA
