Boarding School

Set in the heart of the Cotswolds, Wycliffe offer a range of boarding options for children from the age of 7 through to 19. Our boarding school enables children to have a well-rounded education and be well-looked after with first-class facilities on campus including a modern gymnasium and a state-of-the-art theatre. Our boarding school provides the perfect blend of community, culture and high quality tailored care to allow boarders to thrive and develop.

Putting your child in a boarding school may feel scary but Wycliffe do everything we can to ensure your child is happy, settled and supported at all times.

Boarding to Suit Your Family Life

Wycliffe understand that every family has different needs which is why we offer a range of boarding options including full boarding, day boarding and flexi-boarding. Whether you require safe place for your child to stay on one-off occasional nights or flexi-boarding for 1-4 nights a week, Wycliffe can cater to all requirements. Flexi-boarding proves to be popular with parents with a busy working life or who may work away or if pupils take part in additional extra-curricular activities in the evening.

Staff are around 24 hours a day, 7 days a week so you can feel confident that your children are supported and in safe hands.

Boarding Houses for Girls and Boys

Boarding is available for both boys and girls with a number of boarding houses. Our prep school offers two boarding houses: Pennwood, the boys’ house with 25 boys and Windrush, the girls’ house with 20 girls. Small houses offer a sense of community and belonging for our boarders.

In the Senior School, there is Ward’s House, Ivy Grove, Robinson House, Lampeter House and Haywardsfield House. Each house in the Senior School has its own personality and spirit. Take a tour of our Senior School Boarding Houses.

Facilities and Dorms

Wycliffe are keen to ensure children have a home away from home when boarding with us. The boarding dorms and facilities are designed to help children feel safe and secure as well as feel part of a community. All boarders will share a room with at least one other person with a common room where our boarders can take part in activities together or simply enjoy a bit of down-time.

Boarding School Activities

Children in our boarding school get a mix of free time and activities with other boarders. Activities are organised by the Housemistress and Housemaster with input from the children to ensure they are happy. Activities are planned on an almost daily basis which may include physical activities such as yoga, games nights and cooking. Our activities aim to bring people together and children may even try out something they may not have thought about doing before. At weekends, the boarding houses join together events such as Harry Potter themed weekends, Record Breakers; Laser Tag and Wycliffe Bake Off.

Excellent Pastoral Care for Boarders

Ensuring your child is happy and supported during their time at Wycliffe is very important and is why Wycliffe are passionate about well-being and mental health. The relationship between boarders and staff at Wycliffe is very strong with pupils able to talk to tutors, Matrons, Head of Houses and Boarding Housemaster/mistresses about any issues they may have. At Wycliffe, we focus on a number of things to help children with their mental and physical well-being including physical health through learning and doing, healthy eating and exercise, good sleeping habits and teaching techniques to build self-esteem and confidence.
