Making the decision to go to a boarding school is a huge step for you and your family, but if you live far away (like most of our students) then you might have to consider boarding with us during the week and maybe at weekends.
For many of you this may be your first time away from home. But do not worry, as we have a lovely dedicated team of care staff who will help you settle in and will support your parents with regular updates on your progress. You will be so busy making friends and joining in activities that you will only just be able to find time each evening to have a quick Skype chat with mum and dad to tell them about your day!
Have a look through the videos below, as they have been put together by our care staff and students to give you a true flavour of what boarding at Mary Hare is like. If you still have some questions, please feel free to get in touch or come and visit to see our boarding houses for yourself.
"I live in Northern Ireland and it was hard for me to leave my parents, but I got used to everything. Don’t worry, everyone will be homesick at first, but you will settle down after that and get used to everything. I’ve made lots of new friends and I enjoy the activities we do in the evenings. The school is great!" Former pupil
"When I first came here I was very homesick, but after two weeks I recovered as my new friends kept me happy. Don’t worry because you have support all around you." Former pupil
