Boarding School

Boarders at Myddelton College are part of a large family community; we encourage a sense of belonging and a feeling of personal fulfilment in a happy, stable, caring and friendly environment. Whilst the academic side of things is a high priority, we want all students to fully participate in a wide variety of sporting, cultural and leisure activities.

There are two boarding houses at Myddelton College. We have St. George’s House and Stanley’s House. St. George’s is our Junior boarding house and is for our students aged 11 – 16. Stanley’s House is our senior boarding house and is for our students aged 15-18.

Each boarding house has a residential houseparent, who is supported by an assistant residential houseparent and a matron who helps support our boarders with all of their daily needs. The Headmaster is also the Head of Boarding and lives on site with his wife Sarah and two children, which makes up the family of Myddelton.

Food

Myddeltonian students come from across the globe and we are fully equipped to cater for all dietary requirements. Breakfast ranges from traditional British to continental, and lunch and dinner consist of hot and cold food to suit the needs of all. There is also a boarding committee where students can discuss meals and request dishes. Themed nights are a regular occurrence and are based on nationalities or events such as Chinese New Year.
