Types of Boarding

Every possible boarding option is provided. We offer full boarding, weekly and flexi boarding – which makes our boarding house a fun, busy and happy environment. Children from a wide variety of nationalities live alongside children whose families live in London, or more locally.  Parents can book their children in for a single night as a one-off or regular nights throughout the week.

Holmewood seeks to develop the whole child, by addressing what we consider to be the important facets of a rounded education which prepare children for life after Holmewood and this is particularly true within the boarding environment. We provide an environment for children in which they can achieve as individuals but at the same time we celebrate the differences between them, so that no child feels disadvantaged. Boarding at Holmewood is in essence about care, kindness, support and building positive relationships. We want our boarders to have fulfilled, successful and happy lives.
