Welcome to Boarding
Tettenhall College offers a remarkable opportunity for your child’s education in the UK; set in a stunning location with outstanding facilities our boarders live as part of a true family community where your child will be happy, safe and cared for. This really is "home from home" and family is at the heart of all we do.
We place emphasis on developing individual strengths of children of all abilities and our caring staff create a nurturing environment, with small class sizes and excellent pastoral care. We have over 70 boarders, a diverse mix of British, European and International pupils, all of whom enjoy a close relationship with the staff that live on-site to look after them, and with each other.
Outside of the classroom, there are many opportunities for extra-curricular activities, such as music, drama, sport and charity work. Boarders benefit from weekend activities and cultural visits which makes leisure time enjoyable and enriching. Staff are always there to share our pupils’ successes and help them with any problems they may have.
For international pupils we offer a Pre A-Level Course for those who are not familiar with the UK educational system. This introduces them to the curriculum, provides intensive English language teaching and supports them with their studies.
We trust our boarding information will give you a taste of life as a boarder at our school however, please do not hesitate to contact us with any other questions you may have, we will always do our best to help you.
