Welcome home

At Grantleigh, we know that your child needs a safe and comfortable living environment where they feel supported, in order to thrive. This is why we went to great lengths to create a warm, caring home where your child can enjoy their school years while being support academically, physically and emotionally.

Boarders may decorate their rooms to make them feel at home and we have a comfortable learning area where learners where they can relax and spend time with their boarding friends. Our boarding school staff fulfil the roles of parent and councillor of sorts, by building a close relationship with each learner and we have an on-site nurse who can care for any bumps and bruises.



What we offer

Our boarding school services include laundry and housekeeping, Wi-Fi, healthy meals served in a beautiful dining room and comfortable learning areas to unwind and relax. We also arrange fun activities over the weekends and encourage boarders to participate in all spheres of school life to make friends when they first arrive.


The housing arrangements

Each bedroom accommodates a maximum of four boarders, with boys and girls housed in separate buildings, and full-time boarding staff reside on each property.

We have a daily schedule that balances relaxation and studies, while boarding staff help to track your child’s academic progress. You as parent are also welcome to visit at any time.
