Boarding is an integral part of life at Bedales Prep. Inclusiveness, responsibility for self and others, and living and learning together as a community, have always been cherished principles of our communal boarding life.

At Bedales Prep, we offer a distinctive and nurturing boarding experience for students aged 8-13 in a beautifully refurbished co-educational boarding house located in the main school building.

Our flexible boarding provision – full, half and flexi boarding – provides academic, social and pastoral benefits for children and offers parents the flexibility they need in their busy lives.

Boarding at Bedales Prep includes a varied and fun activities programme in the evenings and weekends. For boarders who would prefer to go home for the weekend, we offer an accompanied train service to and from London Waterloo, making us a popular choice for families looking for a boarding school near London. 

Boarders spoke of the positive impact on their confidence and resilience of living away from home and in a community
