Boarding Facilities

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.

Senior Common Room

Senior boys and girls retreat to the newly created, vibrant common room complete with kitchenette, Touch Table computer and Sony 62” curved Smart TV with Sky TV and Playstation 4

Recreation Rooms

Each house has a TV/games room in which the boys and girls, separately or together, can watch films, play computer games, chat and unwind in their free time

Screen-free entertainment

Pool, air hockey, table tennis and football tables provide screen-free entertainment for the boys and girls

Study bedrooms for S5 and Sixth Form

Computer centres are available for use by all of the children in both houses and boys and girls in S5 and Sixth Form can study in their bedrooms if they prefer

Dining together

Boys and girls dine together with staff for breakfast and lunch and specially prepared theme menus are popular throughout the year

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.
