Boarding Overview 

Eagle House, purpose-built to accommodate Prep School boarders, is situated in the heart of the campus. With its distinct family atmosphere, it provides comfortable living areas where our boys can relax and feel at home at the end of the School day.

Opened in 1993, Eagle House accommodates boarders in bright, spacious rooms with beds for 4 to 8 boys, each room having en-suite facilities. The Housemaster and his wife are assisted by a Matron, two Resident Tutors and a Visiting Tutor.

Boys complete their homework, which is supervised and checked every evening, in the study room and each boy has his own study cubicle. The House also has a networked computer system with a Wifi networking capability to allow boys to link to the School computer system.

Recreational needs are well catered for by a large common room and a games room. In the music room, boys can practice the piano, the electronic keyboard or their own musical instruments. There is a fully equipped art and craft room and at the rear of the House the boys have access to the Preparatory School’s all-weather pitch.

The social life of boarders is very full. Visits, trips and outings are regularly organised and full boarders have the whole range of School facilities available to them at weekends. There is a House outing every Sunday.

Weekly boarding is an option and the School also provides a "Day Plus" programme with a range of flexible boarding arrangements for Day Pupils. Some boys do “permanent flexi” which can be the same few days each week for example, Mon/Tues and Thurs nights.

Although a number of boarders live locally, we also have boys who come from across the United Kingdom and overseas. There is an easy mix between boarders and the School’s Day-Boy population which makes for wide and varied friendships within the extended Bedford School family.
