Aim for 'A' Residential Courses at Tonbridge School provide a secure, supportive, caring as well as inspiring atmosphere in which students may study.

Students who have stayed with us on a residential basis have come from Kent, Surrey, Sussex and London with some coming from further afield in the UK from Scotland, Wales, Northern England and East Anglia. Students who have attended our courses from abroad have come from Jersey, Spain, Monaco, the Netherlands, Germany, China, Switzerland, Italy and France.

We strongly believe that a course lasting for three days is necessary for students to retain new information and/or to consolidate upon existing knowledge, with 6 hours of study being undertaken each day. After a full day of study, there then exists the opportunity for students to undertake private study in the evenings in a quiet, controlled setting, as well as to relax in one of the school's boarding houses and to take part in a variety of recreational activities.

During the day our Director of Studies will be available to help with any issues that might arise. At night there will be a resident House Master and Mistress, together with assistant house master who will be available to offer advice and support wherever necessary.

Students will stay in their own one bed study bedroom and boys and girls will be designated their own separate areas.

In each room there will be access to the internet and students will have use of a number of recreational activities.

There is also a social area with a television, where students can relax together, as well as a small kitchen area, where students can prepare drinks.

A film may be shown in the lecture theatre at night once during a course.

Students also have access to football pitches as well as tennis courts, a grass sports area, where they can play rounders or Frisbee. There will also be access to the 25 metre swimming pool.

Students will also be allocated study time and homework time to consolidate their learning in the evening.

Three meals will be provided a day in the school's main dining room:

Breakfast 7.30 am - 8.30 am

Lunch 12.45 pm - 1.40 pm

Supper 6.00 pm - 7.30 pm

Students with individual dietary requirements can be catered for.

All pastoral and non-pastoral staff will have a current DBS or equivalent.

Places are limited and hence an early application is advisable and all bookings need to be made at least one week before the courses begin.

Non-residential students may have a hot lunch along with the residential students for an additional fee of £8 per day.
