Benenden Boarding brings enormous benefits for your daughter: she has the time and space to try new activities, she develops great social and emotional skills, and makes friends for life. Boarding is also a partnership between School and family, and parents are always welcome to join their daughter at weekends or throughout the week to cheer her on in matches, have a catch-up, take her out to lunch or enjoy the food at School - Sunday brunch here in the Café is particularly popular with parents!
There are sometimes weekends when it is compulsory for either the whole School or individual year groups to remain in School, because there are specially-organised events, such as socials with other schools. These are always advertised well in advance to help families plan their diaries.
Our Housemasters and Housemistresses are always happy to discuss weekend options with girls and parents so that the arrangements work for everyone.
