Stover's boarding houses provide a safe and caring community where boys and girls are valued as individuals but have the opportunity to make friends with children from a range of backgrounds and nationalities. The genuine family atmosphere this creates, where each person's gifts are welcomed and valued, is part of Stover's unique appeal.
Younger children live in dormitories where they develop friendships that often last a lifetime. Single or double study bedrooms are available for our Sixth Formers. Each House has a Common Room where pupils can relax together in comfortable surroundings. Younger boarders benefit from interaction with and advice from older students. Older pupils help to supervise prep and act as informal mentors to younger or new boarders.
Each boarding house is staffed by a Houseparent and an Assistant Houseparent who contribute to the running of the house and the provision of activities in the evenings and at weekends. Sometimes we also have assistance from a gap year student who has agreed to work with us before university. This additional young person in the Boarding House is very popular with the pupils.
