Head of Boarding's Welcome

Throughout its history, Boarding has been a central part of Campbell. With such a diverse student body, our Boarders are able to share their cultures and ethos with their peers, which in turn enhances their learning experiences, whilst building lasting friendships that could see them travel the world over. 

I first joined the boarding department of Campbell in 2006 and in my time as Head of Boarding, I have seen our Boarding Family grow in numbers from 61 – 150. At Campbell we talk about inspiring individuals to be the very best they can be. Boarding life at Campbell does just that for our students. Education is not just taught in a classroom, and for me, Boarding provides students with an holistic education, where they can develop their personalities and learn from one another in a secure all-inclusive community.

Reflecting on my time at Campbell thus far, I believe students thrive in an environment which is structured and disciplined, and as long as the students see there is openness and fairness, they are happy. Throughout my tenure, there have been two major developments of our boarding facilities and we now boast state-of-the-art Boarding accommodation including 47 ensuite rooms for senior boarders. Our planned next phase will allow us to extend this boarding to a capacity of 200+. The staff within the Boarding department has collectively worked hard to increase nationalities and welcome new cultures which I hope and trust will continue.
