Our Boarding Community

Boarding is central to School’s life and it is one of our great strengths. Strong pastoral care, high quality teaching and a great emphasis on extra-curricular activity make this a very special community in which to live and learn. A wide range of evening and weekend activities are provided for boarders, along with additional events and fun day trips.

St Lawrence has a wonderful strong sense of community, supported with outstanding pastoral care. We help and support our Boarders to value life in a boarding school environment, which means supporting each other as well as nurturing curiosity.

The truly unique thing about being at St Lawrence is that we develop independence, as well as teach our pupils the importance of community as they live and learn amongst like-minded friends. We value each pupil as an individual and ensure that they take advantage of all that we offer here at St Lawrence College.

Our campus is large and there is so much green space. Our boarders are able to discover the importance of growing up in a safe and secure environment. With outstanding pastoral care, we are able to reassure parents that our staff will support their child 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

We have boarding from age 7 to 18 and you can find out more about each age on the pages below:

“The school is successful in providing opportunities for pupils of all abilities to gain academic success and develop their individual talents.”
