We want to make sure your child has everything they need to maximise their potential for success in here. Boys and girls have separate accommodation blocks on site, each with a dedicated houseparent to ensure 24/7 supervision and care throughout their time at the school.

Accommodation blocks are separate for boys and girls. At The Leys, there are single, twin and dormitory rooms available, including beds, wardrobe, chest of drawers and chairs. Where possible, we mix nationalities in bedrooms, so students are encouraged to practise their English and learn more about another culture.

Access to bathrooms are also separate for boys and girls, as well as for junior and senior courses. There are shared showers and toilet facilities, which are situated at strategic points throughout the accommodation.

Bedrooms and bathrooms are cleaned regularly, with fresh bed linen provided weekly. Students are responsible for making sure their room is tidy and will have regular room inspections. There is a free laundry service for machine washable clothes once a week.

Nutritious meals

Students are offered a choice of nutritious food at each mealtime; breakfast, lunch and dinner. Every menu includes a selection of hot and cold items including fresh fruit and vegetables. Packed lunches are provided on study tours.

Snacks are available during break times and at each evening house meeting. If your child has a dietary requirement associated to an allergy, please let us know so we can accommodate this.
