Boarding At Frewen

Boarding at Frewen College is safe, fun and inclusive. Our Boarding Houses reflects our commitment to create a warm, nurturing home for our students, and our excellent staff work tirelessly to ensure that this is achieved.

Boarders are offered the opportunity to take part in a wide range of after-school activities. These range from cookery to sports, from arts and crafts to music, and from computing to board games, to name a few.

Weekends are filled with an extensive recreational programme featuring activities such as paddle boarding, laser tag, crazy golf, London theatre trips, theme parks, swimming, bowling and cinema trips, as well as shopping in local towns. Activities are varied, appealing to both boys and girls, however special girls-only or boys-only activities are not unheard of - for example the girls-only spa and pamper party!

Boarding Houses

Our two boarding houses, Brickwall House and The Warren have a relaxed, friendly atmospheres where boarders truly feel at ease. Both houses are located within the school’s grounds, where there is plenty of space to explore, play games and relax. 

Boarders have high wellbeing and feel at the heart of the Frewen College community. Our family atmosphere creates a fun place to be, where everyone can strive to do their best. We do our upmost to ensure that all students will leave our school as well-rounded, confident young adults ready to face the next challenge.

Brickwall House - Boy's House

Brickwall House accommodates boys from year 6 (subject to a suitable cohort) to year 13 within the magnificent setting of the old Jacobean house. Rooms range from single occupancy to 4-bed junior dorms, all with ensuite bathrooms and stunning views of our grounds. All boarders are encouraged to personalise their space within their rooms. The House is divided into a Junior and Senior side with age-appropriate books, games, DVDs and a smart television in each common room. Facilities also include kitchen areas where drinks and snacks can be prepared by the pupils to help them develop their personal independence.

The camaraderie and inclusive atmosphere allow all the boys to reach their goals at a pace that works for them. The house staff lead with a clear sense of structure and responsibility within the house, not only building resilience but allowing each boy to develop and fulfil their potential whilst creating and maintaining positive relationships.

The Warren - Girl's House 

The Warren is home to girls from year 6 (subject to a suitable cohort) to year 13. The Warren is a warm and fun house, full of laughter, that offers our girls a real home from home after a busy school day. The house has single and shared rooms, two appointed common rooms for the girls to socialise and enjoy each other’s company, a small kitchenette and lovely private garden.

The girls learn independence and social skills in a happy and positive boarding environment where the girls build strong lasting relationships. Alongside bake-offs and group bonding sessions, movie marathons and UNO championships are a regular occurrence!


We are pleased to offer a flexi-boarding package to our families.

This convenient and flexible approach to boarding is designed to fit in with the needs of your family. Students can stay with us for just a few nights a week or for a few weeks at a time. The flexi boarding option means that we can mitigate the impact of busy work schedules or long commutes to school. It’s quite common for children to join us for a couple of nights each week, where this would be beneficial. It is also a great opportunity for students to develop their independence and confidence, allowing them to grow in maturity as they start to prepare for their life beyond School.

If you would like to find out more, or if your child is already at Frewen and you would like to arrange to visit or a taster night for your child, please contact us on 01797 252494 or email
