Boarding has always been at the heart of Yehudi Menuhin's holistic vision for the School and at the centre of the School's family ethos.

All but a handful of the School's students are boarders. The youngest pupils board on a weekly basis and go home at around 4.00pm on a Friday afternoon. Older students are full boarders, but those who have family locally are able to go home each weekend, if they wish, as soon as School finishes on a Saturday lunch-time.
