Our pupils are dedicated, committed, enthusiastic, and hard working. It’s an energetic and vibrant atmosphere – and that is something that quickly rubs off on new pupils.

Boarding at Tring Park School gives children a head start in developing invaluable life and social skills in a nurturing, family environment. Our day pupils also benefit from the boarding culture; all pupils study, perform and socialise together during the school day.

We’re proud that our students have a place where they can share a passion for the performing arts and integrate with other pupils from around the world.

Boarding at Tring Park

Pupils have the option to experience life at a private boarding school from age 8 to 18. Around 60% of our pupils are boarders. Accommodation is arranged by age and gender and boarders live in one of three onsite houses, each with its own unique character.

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.

Day Pupil Experience

Our day pupils arrive at school around 7:45am for registration Monday to Friday. Lower School pupils finish lessons at 4:35pm. Middle and Upper School finish lessons at 6:30pm.

Day pupils also get to enjoy various activities throughout the year that take place during the school day. Most recently we have had theatre trips, BBQs, ice cream vans, fun fair with rides and prizes, school discos and an ice skating rink; and of course we have our infamous Tring Park sports day, bonfire night and Christmas party!

Weekend Activities

In addition to the well-equipped common room facilities, there are plenty of after-school activities for boarders at Tring Park. After Saturday morning prep, our pupils have the opportunity to take part in craft workshops and, of course, there is the ever-popular weekly tuck-run to the local supermarket for our younger pupils. Boarders can take part in activities such as shopping trips into London, bake-offs, cinema trips, theme parks, sports activities… you name it!

Weekends are an opportunity to relax after a busy schedule of academic and vocational study, but we do offer a full programme of activities for those who wish to keep busy.
