Boarding – Our pupils’ perspective

The term ‘boarding school’ can evoke a variety of opinions and feelings depending on who you ask. Boarding is something many haven’t experienced and the term ‘boarding school’ will often take an individual’s thoughts to that of books and films such as Wild Child, Harry Potter, and St Trinians. Traditionally boarding schools were thought of as somewhere you were sent for bad behaviour where punishments were harsh. However, times have changed and now  that is not the case. We asked sixth formers Hannah Bright and Nia Pannett about their experience of boarding at Christ College Brecon.

Christ College Brecon is an independent co-educational school made up of 380 day and boarding pupils aged seven to 18. Its setting in the Brecon Beacons National Park gives it a very picturesque location offering a huge range of opportunities to its pupils. The rural environment surrounding the school is often an attraction for parents wanting their children to be educated outside of a busy city setting.
