'We value kindness more than any other quality. We allow boys to be boys, and their happiness comes first.

Boarding is key to all of this.'

Tom Bunbury

Please support the appeal and help us turn the vision into reality.

Boarding lies at the heart of the school, whether in recruiting and retaining the high quality staff, in developing the boys' all-important personal qualities, or in enabling the boys to have the 'fun and friendship of a sleepover', as they would describe our modern, family-friendly boarding experience.

We are therefore embarking on a major project to enhance the boys' experience at Papplewick. This new development will underline our commitment to boarding. It will also bring other benefits across the school.

2017 - Papplewick's 70th anniversary – is the ideal time for this development, which will prepare us for the decades ahead.
