School Life


Dorset House has a long tradition of boarding but it is safe to say that the experience today will be very different from that of previous generations.  Children from Year 5 to Year 8 enjoy good food and comfortable surroundings, in an environment that encourages camaraderie, a sense of community and independence.  This experience allows our boarders to move on to senior school and beyond, well equipped to make the most of the opportunities that life offers them. If that weren’t enough, it is also great fun! There is no pressure from school for children to board – any pressure comes from the pupils themselves; boarding is more popular now than ever.
