Boarding

Our boarding facility is unique to Lathallan in the local area.

Boys and girls are accommodated in separate wings of our castle building in small dormitories with between 3 and 6 pupils in each room.

Children are encouraged to personalise their rooms with their own home duvet covers, posters and whatever other decorations make their space seem like their own.

There is a common room for watching films, TV and playing games. All pupils have opportunities to participate in week day and weekend activities. Some of these include trips to; the cinema. gym, Edinburgh shopping, St Andrew’s golfing and baking with house parents.

Flexi-boarding is a popular option with both parents and pupils. Children can board for two or more nights a week on a regular basis to suit family circumstances. This is the ideal solution for busy working families and gives children an early taste of independence away from home.

Prospective weekly and flexi-boarders are invited to stay overnight as part of their ‘taster day’ in school to give them a flavour of life as a boarder at Lathallan.

Our boarding house and care arrangements are inspected twice a year by the Care Commission and our most recent inspection reports have praised the warm and friendly atmosphere and the quality of our care.
