Welcome to our Boarding Department

Boarding has been a feature of Burford School since its foundation in 1571, and today our historic Boarding House, situated in the heart of Burford, provides a home to just over one hundred boarding students from around the world and the UK.

Run with very much a family feel, our Boarding House is warm, caring and supportive. Boarding students who join us develop deep and lasting friendships across age ranges and nationalities. They consistently achieve excellent academic results and are well noted for their achievements in individual and group activities, taking full advantage of the wealth of opportunities we offer within and beyond the classroom.

We also see in all our boarders the development of a range of essential qualities such as independence, confidence and self-motivation, nurtured by the warmth and stability of our dedicated and experienced Boarding House team.

We are always delighted to welcome prospective parents and students to Burford School and believe that seeing the school in action is an excellent way to gain a greater understanding of everything we offer. To arrange a visit, please contact Mrs Kaaber at the details above. We also host a dedicated boarding open morning every February.
