Boarders return to the boarding houses in the afternoon/evening the day before term starts and can leave after school on the day term ends or the following morning. There are special arrangements for international boarders if quarantine rules are in place, and for new boarders at the beginning of the Academic Year which usually take place the day before the Autumn Term commences: parents will be sent details by each section of the School. 

At half-term (and at weekends) weekly boarders should leave after the end of school on Friday and can return from late afternoon/evening of Sunday, unless prior arrangements have been made to remain at the boarding houses.
