Southwell caters for boys and girls from Year 5 to 8. The boarders are under the care of the Heads of Boarding, Assistant Housemasters, School Nurse, House Mother and House Tutors. A daily routine is organised for the boarders which enables them to make the most of the opportunities the School offers and teaches them to manage their time effectively. Students are nurtured to develop independently in a caring, homely environment.
