Boarding Values

As well as pursuing their own aspirations and interests, boarders at Bede’s Prep School are encouraged to learn the social skills needed to develop an appreciation of the needs of others.

By sharing their knowledge and experience and listening to those of their fellow boarders, children quickly develop these skills which will be of life-long benefit to them.

For those children who plan to go on to board at Bede’s Senior School, life at Meads End provides the perfect preparation.  Within its smaller and nurturing environment, children can develop the values and skills which will enable them to thrive in a larger boarding community later on.  Indeed, we actively support this transition through a programme of familiarisation visits meaning that by the time comes to move on, it feels like the most natural move in the world!
