Another ‘That depends' answer! Younger boarders are likely to share large bedrooms for up to 6 children, more usually 4, so that each child has their own area which they can personalise with photos and favourite things, but also has the company of other children. It's a sociable and happy environment in which strong friendships are forged.
Older pupils will find smaller bedrooms for perhaps two students, more commonly now single study bedrooms. Schools have spent on average £1250 per boarder in the last year on refurbishing and building boarding accommodation. In some, the single study rooms will also have en suite facilities.
Senior pupils' accommodation will be strongly reminiscent of university accommodation, and supervision is likely to be ‘lighter-touch', as is age-appropriate.
Whatever the age of boarders, their House is likely to have comfortable communal areas for relaxing and socialising and, as they get older, even cooking for themselves.
