Boarding and Pastoral Care for students:
Ellesmere is progressive in its thinking and offers boarding based on age group. This allows boarders to grow and learn within larger friendship groups, share more experiences together and form life-long relationships. Modern accommodation provides a top-class, cosy and safe environment for students, with residential staff on site to care for pupils at all times.
A host of sports programmes and clubs are available, enabling pupils to find something to satisfy their interests, from pentathlon to golf. Ellesmere’s excellent swimming pool is very popular with pupils, as is the on-site gymnasium. Ellesmere is proud of its Arena Arts programme which promotes the arts both within the College and throughout the local community. It covers the traditional visual arts of drawing, painting and sculpture, the established performing arts of dance, drama and music as well as more modern media such as sound recording, film making and digital photography. Visiting specialists regularly hold master classes at Ellesmere, and students hone their skills further through participating in festivals and national competitions
