Flexi and Occasional Boarding

Prep Boarder Studying

Our outstanding flexi boarding or occasional boarding are both options available to parents of children in Years 3 to 8 during term time, providing space is available in the boarding houses.

Flexi Boarding

From two nights per week, booked termly in advance, your child is guaranteed a cosy bed and quality time spent with their boarding friends. This could be of benefit for pupils with early morning clubs, for busy parents or as a way to build up to full boarding. After school, they are able to enjoy evenings in with other children and house staff. If needed, they can be supervised during prep, enjoy quiet reading or have fun in the games room and grounds.

Occasional Boarding

There may be times when unexpected work, family or school commitments create logistical challenges. You are welcome to book a boarding place on an occasional basis, if space permits. Please note that the same bed in the same house is not guaranteed for each subsequent stay.


If you are current parent and would like further details about flexi or occasional boarding please login to our parent portal and complete the relevant form in the ‘Forms to Complete (Optional)’ section. If you are a prospective parent and would like further details on flexi or occasional boarding please contact our Admissions team at admissions@millfieldprep.com

The quality of boarding education is outstanding...the boarding houses are seen by pupils very much as home rather than an extension of school.
