Life As A Boarder

We ensure that each student feels happy with boarding life from the start and we are always there to help.


A home away from home


Every young person in our care is encouraged to make themselves at home from the moment that they step through our doors.


With high quality dining facilities, spacious rooms and dedicated communal areas, students can relax and socialise with their peers.


Quiet study areas and a fully equipped computer suite offer the perfect learning environment for daily prep and revision, while the surrounding grounds provide acres of space for sporting activities.


We welcome many young people from a range of nationalities and cultures. As well as British and European students, young people join us from places as diverse as Nigeria, Hong Kong and China. Having this mix of students helps each young person to gain an invaluable view of the world we live in. Our recent Ofsted report noted:



A caring and supportive environment


Pastoral care is at the centre of life at Wainfleet Hall.


We are proud to work in partnership with parents, governors and the school, to ensure that each student is known as an individual and encouraged to thrive throughout their time with us.


Staff are always on hand to listen and support our students, providing a homely atmosphere with structure, routines and clear boundaries for every young person. Parents are kept informed of students’ progress as well as any issues or concerns that are raised.


The school nurse visits regularly, providing a weekly drop-in service for all age groups, while senior boarders act as role models and mentors for younger students at the boarding house.


To encourage and support boarders as they develop their own independence, we also ensure that every student has access to all the amenities of a normal home – like a kitchen and lots of communal social areas.


Boarders are encouraged to have their say on how the boarding house is run, sharing their views on food, boarding and the activities on offer at Wainfleet Hall. Students also feed into Skegness Grammar’s school council to ensure that the needs of boarders are met at the main school site.
