Living in a Boarding House
All of our students at the International section can stay in one of our boarding houses. All the students in these boarding houses will be on our one or two year IGCSE programme or our study abroad programme.
Our boarding houses provide a welcoming, family environment in which students from all over the world make new friends and become part of the d’Overbroeck’s boarding community. Each house is looked after by a Head of House and a teaching assistant so there are always staff available to help and to look after students.
Our St. Aldate’s boarding house
- 50 rooms
- Common room

Students will have breakfast, lunch and evening meal provided. This is healthy and delicious food with a range of options cooked by our professional catering company, Holroyd Howe.
Students are taken to and from school on our school minibuses.
In the evening there is a study period from 7 to 9pm and students must be in their rooms by 10.30pm. Each house has communal area where students can relax with their friends.
All students at the school are registered with a local doctor and we also have a school matron in case anyone feels unwell.
Students rooms will be tided and cleaned on a regular basis with fresh linen and towels every week. All of our Boarding Houses have wi-fi access.
In the evenings and at the weekend there are a range of activities, visits and trips. Students will have the opportunity to go to cinema, the theatre, Harry Potter studies, cities around the UK as well as social events such as the welcome barbeque.
Boarding provides an unforgettable experience where you are living with a close group of friends who you will probably keep in contact with for the rest of your life! It provides a safe and welcoming environment providing a comfortable place with live with friends.
We very much look forward to you joining our boarding community. We will send you lots of information in advance about boarding and the first few days at the school. When you arrive we will make sure you quickly feel at home and enjoy being at d’Overbroeck’s and in the UK!
Host family accommodation is also available on request.
