For boarders, Southwell School is their home away from home.
Southwell School accommodates up to 70 boarding students each year. There are 3 options available to families thinking about considering Southwell as a place for boarding and educating on site. The children who do board are cared for by a Boarding House Mother and a Boarding House Master, who both live onsite, plus a Nurse and 4 overseas tutors who are available 24 hours a day.
5 day - This option is for students who wish to board at the school throughout the standard week days of Monday to Friday. Students can be collected by their parents after school on Friday afternoon, and can return between 6.30pm and 7.30pm on Sunday evenings or before 8.00am Monday morning.
6 day - This option is for students who board at the school throughout the standard week days as well as Saturday. Typically students who chose the 6 day boarding option fulfil their Saturday sports commitments before going home afterwards for the rest of the weekend. They then return between 6.30pm and 7.30pm on Sunday nights or before 8.00am on Monday morning.
7 day - These students board at the school for the entire week and return home on request or at designated leave weekends which are scheduled 2 or 3 times per term.
Parents or caregivers are asked to indicate which option they would like at the start of each term, as the option selected may be affected by the student's choice of sport.
