Swimming is taught in our 25m indoor pool and pupils can learn to play golf on our 9-hole course. Children can also engage in further sports like horse riding as well as outdoor activities such as Beavers, Cubs and Brownies in our woodlands and beyond.
With a strong track record of scholarships to top Senior Schools, including the top academic scholarship to Rugby in 2015/16, space to play and room to learn, children enjoy the best education and an idyllic childhood at Bilton Grange.
Full, weekly and flexi boarding are all popular at Bilton Grange, and boarding life is fun, with children able to take their first steps towards independence in warm, homely boarding houses staffed by our amazing team of matrons, house mothers and our Assistant Head, Boarding.
We have one boys’ house and one girls’ house, and both houses have undergone extensive refurbishment, with dorms being redecorated (in consultation with the children) to reflect that these truly are homes from home.
In advance of them joining, we invite children who are going to be boarding at BG to have one or two nights with us in the boarding house, as well as a full day at school. We recognise that it can be a big step for families and children, and a taster often helps alleviate little worries and concerns about what staying at BG might be like. We also provide a ‘guide to boarding’ which answers both parents’ and children’s questions.
Working in partnership with parents, staff create a nurturing environment where children away from home for the first time can feel comfortable, safe and secure, whether they are staying for an occasional night a week or full boarding.
A full programme of evening and weekend activities means that learning to board in preparation for senior school, is accessible and enjoyable. Special events including discos and candlelit formal dinners help to make boarding a truly special experience, creating memories and friendships to last a lifetime.
