Boarding at Adcote:

Image of Day & Boarding School for Girls in Shropshire, UK- Full-time, weekly or occasional boarding facilities are available for girls aged 7 to 18. Boarders live on the first and second floors of the house where the rooms are airy, spacious and attractive. Most girls enjoy sharing a room, whilst some of the Sixth Form have a study bedroom of their own.

- Each student has a personal tutor to offer friendship, support and guidance. In addition to tutors, responsibility for the care, personal development, welfare and general happiness of boarders rests with the resident Pastoral Deputy, who is assisted by three resident matrons and supported by the school doctors. The boarding team provide support for the girls in their academic work and encourage involvement in extracurricular activities.

- Adcote’s underlying principle is consideration for others and we have a strong sense of both family and traditional values in the House. There is a happy mixture of local girls and those whose homes are elsewhere in the UK, with students from other countries who have chosen to study in England.

- Our aim is to provide a safe and homely environment that enables each girl in our care to become a self-sufficient and independent young woman, fully equipped to face the challenges of life in the 21st century.

- Adcote is a full termly boarding school, and girls are well looked after, not only during the week but at weekends, too. As part of our imaginative provision for both day girls and boarders, we run trips to local venues for shopping, swimming and bowling, visits to concert halls and theatres in the region, and weekend trips to places such as The Eden Project, Bath, and Hadrian's Wall.

Brockhurst and Marlston House Schools, Berkshire
Courses / Programs
Brockhurst and Marlston House Schools are twin day and boarding schools that share the same estate at Marlston, Hermitage in the Berkshire countryside. Brockhurst teaches boys from six to thirteen years of age, while Marlston House teaches girls of the same age.

Boys and girls are taught together in our vibrant co-educational pre-prep school (ages 3-6). From Year 2 they are taught separately in small, single-sex classes. We believe this is the best system for developing their academic potential.

Boys and girls continue to mix for the many social and extracurricular activities we provide. At the age of thirteen, their classes are combined again in preparation for the Common Entrance exams.

At Brockhurst and Marlston House Schools, we aim to provide a first-class, unique education in a disciplined and happy, family environment. Both schools offer a broad curriculum, which includes art, drama, music, and an exciting variety of other activities. This breadth is reflected in the range of scholarships achieved.

Approximately 1.25 hours drive west of London, our schools are situated in a magnificent Jacobean style mansion set in 500 acres of stunning Berkshire countryside. Our mission is to develop enthusiastic, self-confident and well-mannered girls and boys with enquiring minds.
