St. Christopher's International Boarding Section

St. Christopher’s International School offers a warm, vibrant and safe home in school for our boys and girls in Hamilton and Meynick house respectively. The recently remodeled and modernized houses suit the needs of our pupils for them to reach their full potential in the 21st century.

 

Our pupils are exposed to a path that fosters personal responsibility, respect and tolerance, global citizenship and self-actualization. We have undergone rigorous assessment and attained approval for both UK and international standards through the Boarding Schools Association as well as Council of International Schools.

Boarding Facilities

We provide 4 bed dorms for our boarders which they share with friends. All bedrooms are en-suite, with warm showers, individual learning space and spacious room for socialization.

 

Pupils of age 11 to 18 (grades 7 to 13) from a range of nationalities, enjoy of world class food prepared by under the guidance of a qualified industry leading chef. The menu is ever fresh with seasonal foods and international delicacies and is inclusive of any dietary requirements our pupils may have.

Boarding Students' Well-being

While our purpose is to provide an environment dedicated to educational success, the overall physical and emotional wellbeing of our pupils is our primary concern. By placing your child in our boarding school, you are entrusting us with their care, and we take this very seriously.

 

We have a dedicated team of Boarding Tutors for both boys and girls, though all pupils can speak to The Deputy Head-Pastoral if they wish. The Boarding Tutors are available 24 hours a day and operate an open-door approach, so pupils are always welcome to discuss any concerns they may have.

 

A nurse is present on campus during the week 24hours a day and administers any medicine that a boarder may need. The boarding tutors are trained in First Aid to administer medicines and care for non-serious issues. The School has close access to medical centers such as Karen Hospital with whom we have an excellent relationship, should more serious health issues require expert care.

 

Pupils in the boarding houses are exposed to a detailed, proactive, and topical discussion every week to cover PSHE issues that regard to their wellbeing. They also enjoy a diverse, elaborate weekend enrichment program that ensures that they have a balanced stay in school. They participate in outdoor activities such as sports and trips.

Boarding life is not just about the relationship between staff and pupils; parents play a key role in the development of their children and it is essential that they work in partnership with the boarding teachers to ensure that their son or daughter gains the maximum possible from their boarding experience.
