Boarders at the Dairy House live in an idyllic and safe setting, well connected to social opportunities in the nearby town of Ipswich just five miles away. Equally, they can enjoy exploring the rest of the UK as the school is just one hour from central London and an hour from Cambridge.
The Dairy offers a range of rooms for pupils from Year 7 upwards, including twins, singles and ensuites. The Dairy has been completely renovated, and opened in September 2019, with brand new accommodation. The boarding house has Wi-Fi and boarders are able to use the school’s numerous facilities including the swimming pool and fitness suite in their free time.
We offer full-time boarding in The Dairy from Year 7 and upwards. Each boarding pupil has their own bed space and personal storage, which is theirs for the whole academic year. The fee includes all meals, accommodation, laundry and 24-hour care by residential house staff. See fees for further information.
Weekly boarders will stay at The Dairy for five nights each week during term time, arriving on a Sunday evening and leaving after school on a Friday to go home at weekends. On request and with approval, weekly boarders may stay overnight at weekends on occasion.
Flexible boarding will be offered with the completion of phase two of our new boarding facilities and we hope to be able to offer this from September 2020 for those pupils who would like to board on a more casual basis.
