Flexi-boarding. Options that work for you

School News ·
Whitbarrow Hall

Flexi boarding is a great way to improve your family time, and afford your child a more focused way of learning outside school hours.

You want the best for your child.  You want them to enjoy their school days, make friends, have amazing experiences and develop the skills to succeed professionally and be happy in their personal lives.   

Boarding at Dallam provides students with an environment where they can learn to be more responsible for themselves, their work and their friendships – while having the care and support of our dedicated houseparents who are always on hand. 

Students at the boarding house benefit from a wealth of activities every evening and weekend such as: sports, house competitions, horse riding, pamper nights and weekend trips. 

With the school day and homework taken care of, our flexi boarding options allow families to enjoy quality time together at weekends. 


Pressures on modern family life

We understand the pressures of modern life on families.  There’s never enough time to do everything that needs to be done, let alone the things we would really like to do.  Flexi-boarding is a way to relieve stresses such as:

  • support with homework (for students AND parents!)
  • reducing daily travel time to be able to use time more productively and socially
  • parents who need to work early, late or in shifts
  • parents who need to work away from home.

Flexi-boarding offers the benefits of full boarding to those families that would like it but don’t need it all the time.  The minimum booking period is for one-half term.

Dallam School now offers three flexi-boarding options:

  • weekly (Mon – Fri)
