Boarding at Campbell is a life-changing experience which encourages independence, improves focus and fosters international friendships. Find out more about Boarding at Campbell College here.

We welcome boarders from all over the world in Year 8 (age 11) to Year 14 and currently have 130 Boarders who call Campbell their ‘home from home’

All applications will be processed by Mrs Leigh Crawford, Telephone: +44 (0)28 9076 3076 Fax: +44 (0)28 9076 1894, who will liaise with Mr Bert Robinson, Head of Boarding.

Mr Robinson will oversee all applications and is happy to offer any interested families a tour of the College and our Boarding facilities. You will also be provided with the opportunity to meet with the Headmaster, who, ultimately, is authorised to make available boarding places for each year group according to need.

Admissions must be contained within the School’s Total Enrolment Number as agreed with the Department of Education. Availability of places will, therefore, depend on the existing enrolment of the School at the time of application and the distribution of pupils across the different year groups.

All admissions are managed through our online portal found here

Parents of International Boarders must nominate a guardian as part of the admissions procedure.

All students should have appropriate guardianship arrangements in place to allow them to be hosted outside the College during those times when the Boarding Department is closed for holidays, as necessary, during illness, when residency in a communal environment is not suitable, or for disciplinary reasons. This is an essential criterion for admission.  

Many international students will also require a visa and we would recommend that you visit the visa and immigration service website to check the regulations.
