Boarding at The Park School

Riverside Boarding House

“The Park School boarding house has a warm and friendly atmosphere.”

Our happy boarding team welcomes flexi or full boarding pupils, and boarders typically come from all over the UK as well as from different parts of the world.  From the moment our boarders arrive at Riverside Lodge boarding house they become part of our extended family and many become friends for life.  Together they make a happy, relaxed atmosphere in the boarding house, creating a special home to return to after each school day.

Boarding life is fun, with a variety of weekend activities planned and chosen by the boarders themselves. We are fortunate to be situated in the picturesque county of Somerset, on the Dorset border, within a short driving distance of the seaside coast too, with its many fun activities.  We try to give our boarding family a real taste of life and history in the south west of England.

All students are nurtured and guided in their work and recreation, and our Sixth Form boarders are especially prepared for the independence and self-discipline they will need at university.

Flexi (Occasional) Boarding

Some families require flexibility when it comes to boarding – they may wish their child to board only occasionally according to their work commitments for instance.  We are happy to take enquiries for flexi or occasional boarding and can offer places subject to there being beds available.  To find out more about flexi boarding options, please contact Jane Whear, who will put you in touch with our boarding team.  Call 01935 850555 or

“Our boarders might enter as strangers but they leave as friends.”
