King’s College Saint Michaels provides a friendly and warm environment with family values at its heart. Our boarding community, compromising many different nationalities, fosters a strong sense of camaraderie whilst promoting responsibility and independence.
The school provides a safe, secure, positive and enjoyable environment for all our students to live in and it is our utmost concern that everyone is well looked after and cared for at all times.
Living in the international atmosphere of the school residence gives pupils the opportunity to become fully immersed in school life, as well as being an ideal way to make friends and experience other cultures. Our modern accommodation provides a high quality, comfortable and safe environment for our pupils, with onsite residential staff to tend to the students’ needs 24 hours a day. There is a close liaison between the boarding and teaching staff to ensure continuity of information and care at all times. Students have supervised study each weekday evening and on Saturday mornings for two hours.
Our Boarding Committee made up of students from each boarding house, holds regular meetings which provide the students with a discussion forum in which they can bring up any topics or concerns in a mature and organised way.
Jubilee House is our sixth form residence, providing high quality residential accommodation in single and single en-suite rooms. The rooms in all the other buildings are either single, twin or twin en-suite. All rooms are charged at the same rate on a ‘first come, first served’ basis. Each residence also has its own kitchen for students which comes well equipped with all the necessities for day to day life, including kettles, rice cookers, microwaves, fridges and ovens. This allows our students the flexibility to embrace their culinary skills and prepare their own food or snacks when they want. We have two communal kitchens which have been built for our students to cook some of their own home comforts together.
In their free time students have access to two separate common rooms, where there are flat-screen televisions, Playstations, table tennis, snooker table and gaming computers. Students are free to use these areas during their free time. There is also a gym on the campus with a treadmill, rowing machine, step machine, free weights and yoga/pilates area.
The largest student common room is situated on the second floor of the main building. It is an area for students to relax and has the benefit of a cafe bar selling hot and cold snacks and drinks. At weekends, students often arrange disco and karaoke nights!
Our sports facilities can also be used during free time and every Wednesday afternoon when all students must participate in a sport or activity. There are two football pitches, an indoor and outdoor basketball court, tennis court, swimming pool and a volleyball court. There are also regular full-day excursion at the weekend and the school minibus is sometimes available for local trips.
All meals and a laundry service are provided at the College.
