Learning for Life

Home away from Home

Martin House College accepts both weekly and full-time boarders. Our matron and teachers ensure that prep is done, but that there is also enough time to enjoy our beautiful grounds and play – like children should. Our Boarding facilities also includes an Outdoor Programme to encourage mental and physical fitness.

Boarding schools offer a positive platform for social development and individual growth within a secure and structured environment where individuals are recognised and nurtured for who they are.

Martin House College boasts three boarding houses where each house is supervised by a senior house parent who has a residence attached to the boarding house.

Seventy-five percent of learners at Martin House College are boarders. The boarding houses are modern and comfortable, and every effort is made to ensure that your child’s time at the College is both happy and productive. 

Martin House College offers both weekly and termly boarding opportunities. Weekend activities are arranged for termly boarders.

Our Mission

The philosophy and ethos of the boarding house is to create an environment that is akin to a ‘home from home’ atmosphere.

It is vital that the pupils are comfortable, secure and feel completely at home in these environments. They must feel secure in the knowledge that there are ‘house parents’ who oversee the welfare of each individual and to whom they can turn in a time of need: someone who will listen and guide them, and if necessary advise or console them should the need arise.

Three wholesome and balanced meals are planned daily in conjunction with a dietician and are prepared under the supervision of a catering manager, and snacks are served during school break times.

As part of this process and creating a ‘home from home’ atmosphere, each boarder can decorate and accessorise their room with comforts from home.


Just Like Home

The boarding establishment does not only provide shelter and nourishment to its busy little inhabitants.

It is a home filled with love, friendship and respect for each other and your living surroundings.

A Healthy Routine

A structured programme ensures that the boarders become used to a routine which provides for physical, emotional, academic and social needs.

We believe that children should have responsibilities and be responsible for their possessions and actions.

Cleanliness is next to

Students are accommodated in individual cubicles with shared ablutions.

Each child is responsible for making his or her bed and tidy their lockers while our efficient cleaning staff take care of the general cleaning.

Say Your Prayers

In line with our Christian ethos, the day starts and ends with a prayer and we say grace at mealtimes.

Rest is Important

Free time is the highlight of the day. This time is spent in the sand, in the lush gardens or on the bicycle track. It is here where the imaginations run free and new games and friendships are born.

Raised Properly

Our boarding establishment certainly provides the environment for development of compassion, independence. Here we are definitely ‘Learning for Life‘.
