The ‘Boarding Bus’ heads to Gloworm

Think of the term ‘Boarding School’ and you probably think of pokey hallways and rows of beds.

Well think again!

If you’re a boarder today, you’re probably far more likely to experience light airy spaces, with all the comforts of modern living and the latest technology.

And at Gloworm, you’ll get the chance to find out. The ‘Boarding Bus’ is kitted out as a typical boarding house room, with built-in bed, desk and refrigerator, shelf and storage space and a slick flat-screen TV.

“Boarding in 2017 is a very different experience, to that of 30 years ago” says Leila Gold, Marketing Director at Worksop College and Ranby House, one of the festival’s main sponsors.

“Parents want flexibility and for many families, boarding just a couple of nights a week means cutting down on the school run or accommodating evening plans. Plus, for the boarders, it means a sleepover with their friends!

Our most recent boarding facility, Mason House has been nominated for a number of architectural awards and is more reminiscent of exclusive student accommodation than what many people might perceive a boarding house to be like.”

“We hope lots of festival-goers will take the opportunity to come and take a look round the Boarding Bus and have a chat to our team about the different options available at our school.”

Worksop College and Ranby House School is one of the County’s leading independent schools – educating boys and girls aged 3 to 18 and set in 400 acres of beautiful North Notts countryside.
