Welcome from the Head of Boarding

At Bishopstrow College, our boarding team’s top priority is to ensure that our students are happy, healthy and well cared for, allowing them to achieve their full potential academically, socially and physically.

Bishopstrow’s boarding community enriches our students and helps them build strong friendships and connections.  We encourage our students to learn to work and socialise together and to live their lives to their full potential, within a safe and nurturing environment, thereby allowing a sense of independence to flourish.

Boarding at Bishopstrow offers a happy and vibrant family environment, where residential staff supervise and nurture students to ensure comfort and safety at all times.

The College’s five virtues are to be hard working; a team player; kind; polite; and to be organised.  If students carry these five virtues with them in life, they will do well.

I look forward to welcoming everybody to the Bishopstrow family.


Ian Ravenhill, Head of Boarding
