By joining College as a boarder, your daughter will join our 850-girl College community of which about 80% are boarders. Our boarders join us at 11+, 12+, 13+, 14+ and 16+ from hundreds of schools, both state and independent, from across Gloucetershire, the UK, Europe and the world. Some girls will have boarded before, some have experience of boarding for short periods but many will not have boarded at all.

Your daughter will belong to one of our 11 boarding houses: six junior and five senior. Whichever house she joins, it will be her home at College, and she will be looked after by a team of non-teaching House staff, supported by a Deputy Housemistress and headed by a Housemistress.

Please don't be concerned at this point that you are unsure about which year group your daughter will join. However, you should aim to confirm this with us approximately 12 - 18 months prior to her proposed entry (approximately 24 months if you are considered the Early Entry Route for 13+) to ensure that you receive the appropriate entry exam information at the right time.

In the meantime, please come and visit to get to know us a bit better, and complete and return a Registration Form as this will help us keep in touch with you regarding upcoming deadlines and events. 

Please give our Admissions Department a call on +44(0)1242 707070 for more information.
