Colchester Royal Grammar School is a selective day school for boys aged 11 -18 years and co-educational in the Sixth Form.  Boarding in the co-ed Sixth Form at CRGS offers a fantastic opportunity for students to develop their independence, a perfect stepping stone to their next chapter in life. Boarding at CRGS is being part of an extended family, within a close-knit community, with mutual respect between staff and students as the foundation of pastoral care.

As a state funded school, students must have English and Maths GCSE (or equivalent) at level 4. Applicants without GCSE English and Maths will be considered but they will need to study for these qualifications whilst at school. If the student is studying English or Maths at A-level the GCSE qualification is not required.

One of the biggest benefits of being a boarder means we have access to the school facilities, our boarders are allowed to play the grand piano, use the gym, watch movies on the big screen and utilise our smart board technology for their studies. It is however the beautiful library which draws most of our boarders attention throughout the evenings and weekends. Our well-equipped games hut and newly renovated common room really allows a fantastic space for our boarders to relax after a busy day in school.

Our boarders are split across two houses in the heart of school campus. With spacious and newly renovated rooms, our year 13s enjoy a single occupancy room whilst our year 12s share, allowing them an opportunity to develop an understanding of communal living whilst developing a mutual respect for others around them.

Throughout the school year, we are proud to celebrate a number of different cultural events bringing our boarding community together. The boarders participate in inter-house competitions and are encouraged to arrange weekend activities with each other. We offer some bigger trips throughout the year such as jump-street, Thorpe Park, shopping etc. As well as celebrating national boarding day, Christmas and Chinese New Year.

 

The boarders are within walking distance of town, which includes a cinema, leisure centre and numerous restaurants and cafes. Boarders are also only a short train journey to London and with parental consent can enjoy a day in the capital city.
