A Pre-University boarding option

With 90% of our students graduating to top universities, No.5 provides the perfect bridge between Boarding House life and university halls. The additional benefit of our IB Coordinator, Ms Phillips, being in residence also ensures our senior students have out of hours academic care during their final IB Diploma year.

Located next to the Sixth Form, the large Victorian house offers bright and spacious accommodation with a communal kitchen, quiet study spaces and communal living areas. Students continue to enjoy fresh meals daily in the Boarding House, however have the flexibility to use the No.5 kitchen for light meals and baking – perfect for birthdays!

No 5 is situated just a stone’s throw from the amenities of Penarth town centre, making it a very safe, central and well-connected accommodation option.

Boarders living at No. 5 enjoy weekend trips and excursions to explore the local area alongside our other boarders, as well as regular social events including film nights, cookery evenings, bowling, cinema, sports and yoga sessions.
