Many of our children may be going on to schools further afield across the length and breadth of the UK, and so the chance to gain some experience of boarding in a cosier and well-known environment is important. Nonetheless, there will be other Cargilfield children who just want to try the experience, who are drawn in by the chance of joining in with the range of activities and who will benefit from the opportunity to develop a little more confidence and independence as part of the boarding community.
We have a range of evening clubs and activities to suit every taste and our boarding community is supported by a team of experienced and committed staff who, along with the Headmaster and his wife, aim to create the sense of ‘a home away from home’.
Routine, camaraderie and a great deal of fun are what that make the boarding experience a successful one: evenings are very busy with over 50 clubs to choose from after supper, and the flexible approach to boarding means lots of children are keen to experience it.
We can’t welcome you to our grounds right now, but we can offer you a virtual tour and we can answer questions via email or telephone. We especially like to chat face-to-face on a video call.
We have places available for 2021 entry in most year groups.
For now, we hope that this video, presented by our Headmaster, Mr Rob Taylor, will give you a flavour of what life is like here at Cargilfield. Our website and social media channels are kept up to date and hold a wealth of information about our school.
Our Registrar, Fiona Craig is available to contact via email: [email protected] and she will be happy to help you. Thank you
