Boarding pupils form about sixty percent of the pupils at Tring Park. Accommodation is arranged by age and gender and boarders live in one of three onsite houses, each with its own unique character. Clock House, designed by James Gibbs, who was one of Britain’s most influential architects, was once the old stable block for the Rothschild family. Elizabeth House opened in September 2019 and was designed by Burrell Foley Fischer, who also designed the school’s Park Studios. Mansion House occupies the top two floors of the old Rothschild mansion that was originally designed by Christopher Wren, one of the most highly acclaimed architects in history.
The younger pupils enjoy the camaraderie of larger rooms, which helps them to settle in to our community and make new friends; as pupils move up through the school, they have the choice of smaller rooms and all pupils from the Fourth form and up have their own private desk in their room from which to study. Each house has a variety of comfortable common rooms that allow pupils to relax and socialise by the television or over an evening snack.
Each house is led by a full-time residential Senior Housemistress/master who heads up a team of residential and non-residential pastoral staff. These houseparents work hard to provide a caring and nurturing environment within the boarding houses in order to create a 'home from home' for our boarders. All of the houses boast a strong sense of community where creativity thrives and activities such as music, choreography and sketch-writing are a daily occurrence. Pupils can also sign up for a full programme of weekend activities and trips.
