Le Régent’s vibrant co-educational boarding community provides the complete Le Régent experience – and its advantages are shared with day students who are expected to be as much part of the school as their family life allows and benefit fully from all the support and care provided to the boarders.
The Secondary School has two boarding houses, one for the girls and one for the boys; they are looked after by resident Houseparents (Directors of Boarding). They are experienced in running efficient, caring, friendly and purposeful communities. Each room accommodates up to two students. House Parents and Tutors are supported by a young university graduate on each floor.
Academic work during the week is interspersed with moments of fun and complemented by busy and enjoyable weekends with plenty on offer, including outings to town. Evening and weekend activities include sports, cultural outings, horse riding, ice skating, film nights, board games, and forays into the surrounding mountains with specialists making sure all students have a full and diversified educational experience.
We are happy to accommodate most boarding requests from day students, for the odd evening, for regular nights, or for longer blocks of time. Often these requests come from the children themselves who are keen to join an activity or the weekend programme. Having a teacher on hand including during prep can also have significant appeal!
Boy and girl boarders live on separate floors, looked after and provided for by resident houseparents (Directors of Boarding). Small numbers and the special care given to the children’s welfare, together with a real family atmosphere, ensure a harmonious and happy life.
Each student shares a very comfortable room with en-suite shower, with up to three of their peers. They enjoy their own well-appointed Library and there is also ample and safe space for playing and enjoying each other’s company.
Breakfast, morning and afternoon breaks are served in the building, but lunches and dinners are attended in the main dining room. Great care is taken by the school chef to prepare well-balanced meals with plenty of fresh food; special dietary requirements are also provided for.
Evening and weekend activities include sports, cultural outings, horse riding, ice skating, film nights, board games, and forays in the surrounding mountains with specialists making sure all students have a full and diversified educational experience. Day students and many weekends activities ensure a rich link with the local community.
