Happiest Boarding school award
Summer Fields is delighted to announce that we have been awarded highly commended in the Muddy Stilettoes Best Schools Awards in the category of Happiest Boarding school.
This year, the award has received record numbers of entries from around the country and we are very pleased to have been shortlisted. It is testimony to a whole staff effort in making our boarders’ lives happy and homely, as well as providing them with the excellent pastoral care upon which we pride ourselves.
The ongoing refurbishment of the lodges provides the boys with outstanding boarding facilities. A programme of varied weekend and evening activities, many of which take place on our 70 acre site, ensures that boarders are purposefully engaged, whilst also relishing free time with their friends.
Ollie Bishop, Head of Boarding, said
"We are proud to have been awarded highly commended in this category. It is a reflection of the dedication of the staff, in particular the lodge parents, who are completely devoted to the boys’ happiness and well-being. Summer Fields has a long tradition of delivering an exceptional boarding experience. Boarding is at the heart of the school and is the foundation for the boys’ success in the classroom, in concerts and on the playing fields. However, we don't rest on our laurels and we are committed to developing our boarding provision further in order to ensure our boys are happy, respectful and well-rounded.
