Boarding School Life – Settling In, Making Friends & Collecting Experiences.

What is boarding school life like at Fyling Hall School? Emilia and Felicia joined in January. They quickly settled in, made friends and became part of our community.

Emilia’s First Two Weeks of Boarding School Life at Fyling Hall

My first two weeks at Fyling Hall were really nice. Everyone is really friendly and it was easy to become a part of the community. At first it was a bit difficult to understand the English way, but after a few days I figured it out and now I’m already used to it.

I feel welcome and it already feels a bit like home. You never have to be bored. I have to learn to take time for myself. I am happy I got the chance to experience something like this and I would recommend doing it to everyone.

Felicia’s Thoughts on Boarding in UK at Fyling Hall

I had been at a summer school in the summer holidays, so that is where the idea of going to school in the UK came from. I am very happy at Fyling Hall. I love to meet people from other countries and learn something about their culture. That is exactly the thing that I can do here.

I have already made friends and collected experience. This is something that I am looking forward continuing in the next few months.

Honestly, I’m already a little a little bit scared of the day that I have to leave this place. I am sure that the time until then will be most instructive, interesting and the friendliest of my life.

I think that it is an experience that everyone should have at least once and I think that the possibility that you would ever regret it are zero – so my advice is go for it.

More About Boarding

Boarding school life allows students to live and work in a nurturing family-like environment, sharing lessons, meals and activities. Learn more about daily life as a boarder here.

Boarding provides a sense of routine and stability and allows boarders the chance to grow in independence. Many comment that it really helps them to focus and get the most out of school.

Often boarding allows pupils more free time than they would have at home as there is no commute to school. And of course there is access to numerous extra-curricular activities and the school facilities. Each weekend there are excursions and activities with a varied programme throughout the term.

Fyling Hall School welcome international students from all over the world and from across the UK.

The head matron, housemistress and housemaster regularly check-in with our boarders ensuring they are settled and happy. They communicate with parents which we know can be useful for providing more detail! we too have the impression that our daughter has quickly settled in. She doesn’t give too detailed a feedback, but everything we get to know sounds very positive. And yes, she enjoys baking and cooking very much. Thank you for your support!” – current parent of boarding student.
