The term prior to your son joining us at Ludgrove, Mrs Sophie Barber will invite you to a new boys’ morning. These are arranged in small groups and Mrs Barber will explain ‘Life in the Sixes (Year 4)’ in detail. This also provides an opportunity for parents to meet prior to their sons starting and to ask any questions and make any final arrangements over a cup of coffee. When your child starts at Ludgrove, a current pupil in the year above, known as a ‘shadow', will assist in making sure your son settles in well and becomes familiar with the daily routine. On this new boys visit, your son will have a tour from his shadow so he can begin to get a real feel for the school.
“Boarding staff make special arrangements to support the youngest children in their first year of boarding to help them become acquainted with routines and expectations.” - Ofsted Boarding Inspection
