Responsibility, freedom and community
The boarders move away from home when they move into the boarding school. This means that they will experience a higher degree of freedom, but also greater responsibility in the form of washing their own clothes, managing their own bedtime and not least taking care of the few duties they have at the boarding school. Living in the boarding school also means that boarders will be part of a very special community.
During a school year, there are, among other things, a lot of events in the intro weeks, four boarding school parties, series marathons in the cinema, field trips, cake every Tuesday and full weekends of doing things together. There is also a wealth of clubs at the boarding school, which you can read about below
