Read the latest news, events and updates from Summer Boarding Courses
For many of our Abberley Hall students, this may be the first time staying away from home. Even for children who have attended a summer school before, a different place filled with lots of new faces can be daunting. Our primary focus is always on the happiness and security of the children staying with us and our staff are experienced and well-trained in dealing with issues of nerves or home sickness. We keep in close contact with parents during each child’s stay and are always there to answer any questions, before and during the summer. We want every child to return home with increased confidence, happy memories and new friendships and we understand that each child will have different needs while staying with us.
All Abberley Hall Summer School staff are well-trained individuals who help create a home-from-home environment. The children are supervised throughout the day, from wake-up through to lights-out and our staff are always available to help and offer a friendly face. Our staff are residential at the school and therefore through the night-time there are always dedicated staff on duty should the children need them.
Some children adapt very quickly to summer school life, whereas others take a little longer or require a bit more support. Either way, the Abberley Hall Summer School staff are able to offer a friendly face and positive encouragement to ensure that each child has the best possible experience with us. With one member of staff for every five children at Abberley Hall, we ensure that the well-being of our students is always our main priority.
Summer Boarding Courses is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children. We have a comprehensive Safeguarding and Child Protection Policy and procedures in place which all employees, volunteers and contractors are expected to adhere to.
