Why Board At Stonar?
A high-quality boarding experience in outstanding facilities from Year 5 onwards.
Your child will feel safe and cared for as part of our boarding family because their happiness and wellbeing is every bit as important as their academic progress. The relaxed, fun environment means pupils feel free to be themselves. A mixed age profile develops resilience and a sense of responsibility for peers, the school and the world.
Stonar’s rural setting is valued and provides a tranquil learning environment.
There is, however, a microcosm of the wider world within the school. In our boarding community, pupils learn and benefit from the basis of respect. Living with other people means that every child joins a diverse school family and learns to interact with different backgrounds and cultures, developing global perspectives.
We strive to nurture our boarders so they achieve their full potential academically and pastorally.
We have a good routine and homework is done at the same time each evening, with support from duty tutors if needed. Stonar truly is a home-from-home in which your child will derive a sense of individuality and belonging.
At first, I was a bit nervous to board as it was my first time away from home. However, the amazing boarding staff made me feel very welcome and were always there if I needed them."
