Our small class sizes, comprehensive sports programme and enviable facilities include: heated swimming pool, bouldering wall, squash courts, Astros, large library, impressive performance hall and Forest School area. Distinctively, there are no after school clubs. Instead these are embedded into Monday and Thursday afternoons, giving a better and longer time-slot for a range of over 60 activities, from bushcraft, trampolining and sailing to parkour, sign-language and cookery. These enable us to find something for every child to hang their hat on: the confidence they enjoy here spreads into every area of school life.

Boarding at Chafyn Grove provides a well-established and stable family environment for military families, which is essential when children are faced with the instability of one or both of their parents being posted away. Our exceptional pastoral care ensures a home-from-home experience for our students. Boarding house pupils are cared for by our experienced and dedicated Houseparents, who understand the importance of support, keeping in touch and having dogs.

House life is busy, packed with fun activities for pupils to enjoy. As well as the sporting and extra-curricular opportunities on offer at school, our boarders enjoy a full programme of social activities during evenings and weekends. These include quiz and film nights on-site, and a range of trips to local attractions and events, all of which are included in the fees.
