Boarding is a very popular choice at Culford Prep School with some 50 children choosing to board with us. Boarders at Culford Prep live in Cadogan House, a mixed boarding house close to the Prep School, where we provide a home-from-home environment for boarders in the family atmosphere for which Culford School is well known. Cadogan House is within easy reach of Culford's Sports & Tennis Centre and other facilities making it easy for boarders to make the most of their free time.
Boarders have daily access to email through the computers in the Games Room and also are able to use the Housemaster’s computer to ‘Skype’ home. Daily access is given to personal mobile phones in addition to the three incoming telephone lines in Cadogan. Boys and girls have cosy dormitories within Cadogan House. Children bring their own duvet covers and are encouraged to decorate the walls with posters and pictures to make them their own. There are plenty of playrooms with TVs, table football, table tennis, DVD players, a PS3 and Wii Console and a pool table for the children to enjoy. They also have access to a well-stocked library with plenty of fiction and non-fiction titles.
Flexible Boarding at Culford Prep
Culford Prep offers a variety of flexible boarding options including part boarding, weekly boarding, full boarding and occasional boarding.
For those who stay at weekends there is an extensive programme of activities on offer. The programme is planned and published in advance so parents and children have the flexibility to choose when they would like to stay for the weekend. Culford Prep does not operate a system of compulsory exeats and boarders are free to spend any weekend out of school, provided that arrangements have been made in advance.
Pastoral Care of Culford Boarders
Prep School boarders are looked after by a team of dedicated staff under the direction of the Housemaster. 24 hour medical cover is provided by our well-equipped Medical Centre, resident nurse and the on-call School doctor.
