The boarding houses benefit from continual investment and a commitment to providing a nourishing, homely environment for the children.
Both Dean Park House and Erskine House accommodate children in spacious dorms of no more than 5 children per room, with most S5 and Sixth Form children benefitting from sharing with just one other or having their own study bedroom. Children use their own personal large pin boards to make their space their own and are free to use the communal areas which include a television room, air hockey, pool and football tables as well as a computer room with internet as they wish. Music practice rooms are also available for the children to use.
As with any home, however, the kitchen is usually a hive of activity with the children preparing snacks, and chatting with one another and the Boarding House staff. ESMS Boarders have automatic membership to our Sports Centres, which include AstroTurf pitches, a 25m swimming pool and tennis, badminton and basketball courts. Boys and girls aged 16 and over can also use our state-of-the-art fitness suite. The boarding houses are maintained regularly and refurbished each summer holiday.
