Our boarding house boasts spacious and comfortable bedrooms, is newly renovated with attractive modern furniture and contemporary styling.
On the top floor for our boys boarders reside with a resident Housemaster and our ground floor accommodates our girl boarders. Head of Boarding, Mrs Robson, also known as Mrs. R, also lives with the resident house dog, Myrtle, who enjoys the company of a large household very much.
The boarding house boasts a large and modern communal lounge. It is a fantastic social space where everyone comes together and socialises for weekly movie nights, birthday celebrations and pool matches, to name but a few. It’s also our vital news hub, where messages and post are circulated on a daily basis. A well-equipped kitchen area also allows students to have some independence to make drinks and light snacks for themselves, just as they would at home. And often in the evenings, the House team will sit and have a coffee to catch up to see how the day went.
"No matter what the problem is, everyone is there just waiting to give you some help if you need it."
Boarding life is fun, with a variety of evening and weekend activities available.
We are situated in the beautiful south of England, in the heart of Somerset, during the evenings there is a programme for the boarders to immerse themselves in and at the weekends we arrange recreational trips within the immediate area and the surrounding counties to various places of interest. There is plenty of down time; we have beautiful grounds where they have time to take part in popular team games or spend some relaxing quiet time.
It is a legal requirement for all international pupils to have a UK-based guardian or host family, within a 2 hour radius, over the age of 25, for the duration of their stay. The host /guardian should be on hand to accommodate the student during the exeats and half term holidays. They will also need to be called upon in an emergency, at times of illness for example, or in the event of school closure.
As we are not able to recommend guardians, may we direct you to the AEGIS website where you will find a host of information and advice along with lists of local guardians. www.aegisuk.net
The Park School has a reputation for academic success and while it retains the Christian tradition on which it was founded, we welcome pupils from all denominations and faiths.
Students are encouraged to integrate into British cultural traditions and the school also takes part in and celebrates our boarders’ own cultural traditions.
