Late Stay, Occasional and Flexi Boarding Rendcomb College Senior School


“Rooms are well looked after and the Houseparents are friendly and caring.” Good Schools Guide 2017


Late Stay, Occasional and Flexi Boarding Please find information enclosed about the different evening and overnight options available for day pupils from September 2018. At Rendcomb, we are a family and when a day pupil stays late or overnight, they are staying at their home-from-home with their friends, caring Houseparents and their excellent pastoral teams. With classmates, friends and siblings staying too, homework is supervised, the daily commute is reduced and the College facilities are open for organised social events and sports. Within the House, pupils enjoy pizza nights, baking, playing games, watching TV and simply being part of the wider boarding community.


Late Stay Day pupils staying late The school day finishes at 5pm and day pupils can stay until 6pm at no extra charge. They will be supervised by a member of staff in the Library at Main College and can do their homework until they are collected. Parents picking up until 6pm collect their child from Main College. For day pupils who wish to stay on at school after 6pm, a charge of £2.50 will be added to the end of term bill to cover the cost of supper. After supper, pupils will join their House for further supervised homework and evening activities. Parents picking up after 6pm collect children from House. There will be a ‘latest’ pick up time which will vary from House to House and will be published by the Houseparents.

How to Book Email: latestay@rendcombcollege.org.uk no later than 5pm the day before. The subject line should include your child’s House and full name. For example, Stable, Sophie Jones. Within the body of the email, please state the time you intend to collect your child.

The Cost Free before 6pm, £2.50 thereafter.

The Benefits • Book on an ad hoc or regular basis. • Pupils will do their homework with a

teacher on-hand. • Pupils can enjoy supper with friends. • Evening activities such as Barn Social, Sixth Form Social, Sports Hall activities and more. • Use of the Art and Music Departments to complete coursework and practice instruments.


“There’s always time to do homework and if I don’t understand something, I can ask a classmate.”


“The pizza nights are great! I also love the family atmosphere in the House.�


Occasional Boarding Day pupils staying overnight on an ad hoc basis Occasional Boarding is for day pupils who wish to stay overnight on an ad hoc basis on just a few nights per term. For example, after a school concert or to join in with a boarder’s birthday party. The Houseparents will be as accommodating as possible, although Occasional Boarding is subject to availability. We are unable to guarantee the same bed each night for Occasional Boarders, however, this option provides families with the opportunity to book last-minute stays at school providing greater flexibility.

How to Book Email your child’s Houseparents no later than 5pm the day before.

The Cost £35 per night for pupils in Year 7, 8 and 9 up to 8 nights per term. £45 per night for pupils in Year 10, 11, 12 and 13 up to 8 nights per term. Once a pupil has accrued 8 nights in a term, the cost will be £50 per night for all year groups.

The Benefits • Beds can be booked up to the day before

providing greater flexibility for families. • Pupils will enjoy a home-from-home

environment, with the supervision and care of Houseparents and their pastoral teams. • Pupils can take part in evening activities such as Barn Social, Sixth Form Social, Sports Hall activities and more.


Flexi Boarding Pre-booked boarding up to 3 nights per week Families can pre-select specific night(s) each week to board across an entire term. These nights must be booked in advance of the start of each term. Wherever possible, we will allocate the same bed space, however, it will not be possible for personal items to be left at school when the pupil is not boarding. Flexi Boarding must be a fixed number of nights per week but nights do not have to be consecutive (for example, a two night stay might be Monday and Thursday). In the event of a shortage of space, priority will be given to those booking greater numbers of nights. Once booked, the nights are non-refundable and non-transferable. Please note that the Flexi Boarding option is not available to pupils whose parents do not reside in the UK.

“I love that I don’t have to get up as early as the day pupils.”


Weekly and Full Boarding Enhanced options for regular boarding Families looking for regular boarding can select either our Weekly or Full Boarding option. Weekly boarding is currently only available for pupils in Year 7, 8 and 9. All Weekly and Full Boarders will have their own bed and they may bring in decorative items and personal effects. Belongings may be kept at College throughout the term. Weekly boarders can be dropped off at school on either Sunday night or Monday morning and may be collected on Friday evening or on Saturday after fixtures or the new enrichment programme. Full boarders may stay at school throughout each term and will go home for Exeat weekends and Half Term holidays. Full boarders do have the opportunity to go home at evenings or weekends when needed.
