The residential programme at Stonar, a member of the NACE Schools group, offers our students the opportunity to be part of this elite and well-established English boarding school for one or two terms, or for an entire academic year. Stonar was founded 120 years ago and offers over a century of experience in education and care. Its campus extends over more than 32 hectares, in exclusive and beautiful natural surroundings. The school is located just 90 minutes from London, and a stone’s throw from the historic city of Bath. Students study the British curriculum and enjoy a wide range of leisure activities. Furthermore, class sizes are small, so pupils enjoy a personalised learning experience, and keep in close contact with their local tutor.
In addition to its excellent academic programme and extraordinary facilities, students who spend time boarding at Stonar reap the benefits of full linguistic immersion, in the company of students from all over the world. This is a wonderful opportunity to share new experiences, develop an appreciation of other cultures, and forge friendships that will be treasured for a lifetime. The boarding houses at Stonar are designed to be a “home from home”, with cosy and comfortable rooms. They are well-equipped and central, and provide an environment that promotes focused academic study. Students avoid unnecessary distractions from outside the school, and enjoy their free time in communal areas with Wi-Fi, television, a DVD player and video game consoles.
Undoubtedly, one of the best things about Stonar is its spectacular campus: boarders have free access to the centre’s sports facilities including tennis courts, football pitches, an equestrian centre and swimming pool, to name but a few. Students can relax and take a break to socialise with friends from all over the world, and there is a real sense of family and community spirit. Senior pupils act as role models and mentors for the younger pupils, who, in turn, look up to and learn from them.
