What should I bring to boarding school?

Schools will issue a list of the items students will be required to have; numerous electronic devices and games systems will not be part of that list. Students can bring phones and laptops, but may find their access to them is monitored especially for younger children.


Students are free to bring their personal possessions to school within reason, pets are not an option, but most schools will accommodate even the largest of musical instruments. They are encouraged to bring family photos and pictures or posters to decorate their dorm. Student wear their own clothes out of school hours and of course they can bring their teddy bear.
