BOARDING LIFE AT MUSIKILI
Boarding is at the heart of Musikili school life.
It is our boarding school structure that allows us to be the distinctive school we are: creative, imaginative and above all, caring. We have over 100 boarders aged 5 to 13 who live in our boarding houses – a real home-from-home within the school grounds. By keeping the boarding facilities central to our grounds it offers a close feeling where learning, play and living entwine. Children and their families can choose from a wide range of boarding options including full and weekly boarding, flexi-boarding, and occasional boarding (ad hoc nights) for day children.
The weekly boarding option is the most sought after, as our school bus services provide the opportunity for children to travel home on Friday’s, before returning on the Monday morning bus. This option allows pupils to spend quality time with family, recharge and prepare for the upcoming week.
We aim to make the boarding experience as warm and homely as possible, and our care goes well beyond meeting children’s most obvious practical needs. We believe that it is the small things which make all the difference to our boarders’ experience, and we do everything we can to make children feel secure, well cared-for and happy.
