Welcome to Boarding

Tettenhall College boarding offers a remarkable opportunity for your child’s education including full boarding, weekly boarding and occasional/flexi boarding.  Set in a stunning location with outstanding facilities our boarders live as part of a true family community where they are happy, safe and cared for. This really is "home from home" and family is at the heart of all we do.

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.

Boarders are cared for 24 hours and day, seven days a week by experienced and supportive house staff.  The School has 24 hour medical care on site, with every pupil also being registered with our local doctor.  Pupils enjoy a delicious and nutritious breakfast, lunch and dinner every day, all included in the School fees. 

For international pupils we offer a Pre A-Level Courses, which range from 1 to 4 terms. This introduces them to the curriculum, provides intensive English language teaching, allows them to engage with English pupils, English culture and supports them with their studies.

Tettenhall College is set in the beautiful village of Tettenhall, Wolverhampton. It is close to major international airports such as Birmingham (40 minutes away).

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.
