- En-suite bathrooms in the double and single bedrooms
- Spacious social and recreational facilities

Boarding life is busy but rewarding. Boarders have a full day beginning with daily line up at 7.50 am.
Boarders play a full part in the life of the school and are at the forefront of much that goes on in terms of sport, music, drama and expeditions.
Weekends see boarders participate in their own extra-curricular activities which range from cinema trips to sports fixtures, theatre outings, outdoor education and residential experiences. The pupils themselves generate many activities and are able to express ideas for the smooth running of the house through year group committees, food committee and an overall house committee. The Heads of House (S6 pupils) play an active role in promoting pupil involvement.
Further details about life in the house can be obtained by downloading both the pupils' and parents' handbooks in the Parent/Pupil Resources section of this website.
