Stannies boarders enjoy the benefits of a rich College heritage and a diverse cultural and academic life. The College provides a strong focus on pastoral care and a comprehensive support system for all students.
Boarding provides life experience and teaches expectations in a safe and caring environment. Stannies understands that boarding cannot be the same as living at home, as it is communal living. The aim is to instill life values like friendship, honesty and respect in ourselves and others. Boarding House staff are available throughout boarding hours through a dedicated mobile phone service. Parents and teaching staff regularly communicate through email and the College distributes a fortnightly newsletter and regular updates via social media platforms to ensure parents are kept informed of current events both in the classroom and co-curricular pursuits. As part of the communication process, Stannies provides parents and students with ‘Edumate’, a web based, password secure facility, that allows parents to access their son’s academic progress. Families can check set homework, upcoming assignments and assessments and the results for these as they become available.
Support for boarders includes:
