If it is the case that a pupil will be boarding at the school, the process of obtaining a place is occasionally, but not always, slightly easier. This situation arises owing to a small decline in recent years, of parents seeking to board their children at school during term time, although recent research has shown an increase in its popularity once again.

Weekly boarding is also on offer in some schools but it is essential to confirm that it means the whole weekend is free, or, only after school commitments have been honoured on the Saturday. (If a pupil is a member of the choir, for example, then their time is very much sought after for practice).
