At What Age?

Boarding places are available from the age of 7. However, most boarders are of senior school age – traditionally, girls from the age of 11 and boys from 13.

This is still predominantly the same today but, with more schools becoming coeducational, there are plenty of girls who start boarding at 13. Increasingly common is boarding from the 6th form – in other words, from the age of 16.
Places at boarding schools can be obtained at any age as long as the necessary entry requirements have been met.
