Boarding at Shaftesbury School enjoys a well-established and rich heritage dating back to 1898. Barton Hill House, a short walk from the main School, was developed to accommodate boys and girls in 1994, and is now a comfortable, modern and bright boarding house with accommodation for up to 100 students. We are proud to be one of the few state boarding schools in the UK and our boarding house was reopened in 2012 by HRH Prince Edward, Earl of Wessex following a refurbishment and new build. Every year we welcome students from all over the world to join the ‘Barton Hill Family’. I live here with my wife and two children and this is very much our family home like it is for all the boarders.
I believe that anything is possible if you work hard to achieve it and I am so proud of the results and outcomes our boarders achieve each and every year.
Everyone’s success is personal and as a team we work so hard on the individual things which can make each person’s day a success for them. We are a boarding school for everyone, whether you are aiming at the very best universities in the world, or looking for a stable, comfortable environment to live and study. I encourage you to come and visit us to see for yourself the warm, caring environment we have here and to see if you would like to join the Barton Hill family.
