Boarding at Kirkham Grammar School is an outstanding experience. Recent Inspection Reports have confirmed the quality of provision here and we enjoy the benefits of being part of a thriving school and yet are able to provide a family based community at the very centre of the school.
KGS boarders have busy lives engaging with the wide variety of activities on offer here at school without the demands of travelling to and from school. They live in comfortable accommodation, recently refurbished, and join a very 'family concentrated' community. Being quite small the pupils know each other well and play a large role in developing the happy atmosphere which is so central to our House.
Boarding at Kirkham Grammar School is flexible with full and weekly boarding on offer. Casual boarding is possible but dependent upon bed availability and then through negotiation with the Head of Boarding and students. The latter has become increasingly popular with our day pupils when parents are away on business or holiday. Arrangements are frequently made for students to experience a trial night, weekend or week. Detailed information may be found in the booklet entitled "Guidance for Students", "Guidance for Sixth Form Students" and the "Parental Information Booklet".
We hope you will feel able to visit us here at school and to sample the boarding life. This section of the website should give some insight into the boarding house and its background but please do make contact with us at school if you wish for further information.
