Boarding FAQs

  • All boarders who are returning to Dallam the following academic year can store luggage at the boarding house during the holidays and over the summer holiday period – a storage room will be provided. 

  • Invoices are sent out in advance of the start of each term.  Payment should be made at least one week before the start of each term.  The annual boarding fee is split into three payments. 

  • Providing you forward all flight details to the boarding house 14 days before each holiday, we will help you coordinate your child’s travel plan.  For more information on travel, see ‘Essential travel information’ in the Boarding Handbook.

  • We understand the importance of communication between parents/carers and the boarding team.  We will send you a report in the first two weeks to let you know how your child is settling in, and then a full report is sent to you every term.  Our boarding parents are always in touch here and there with little updates too.

  • Students travel to and from the boarding house by the school bus or they can walk the short distance.

  • School uniform is worn in Years 7-11.  You can find uniform information here.

  • That’s great!  There are full and flexi boarding options at Dallam School and Sixth Form.  Email us at or give us a call on 015395 6337 and our boarding admissions team will be happy to help.
