I would like to take this opportunity to welcome you to Boarding at The Lady Elizabeth School and am excited to have the opportunity of getting to know you all individually. During your time as a boarder you will be encouraged to work hard at your studies while learning to maintain a balance between work and leisure. The house will have many students from differing cultures and backgrounds; make the most of this opportunity to share experiences and learn about others. The friends you make here can last a lifetime and can open many doors for you in the future. As young adults you will not only be encouraged to take personal responsibility for your studies, but you will also learn how to become more independent by learning many life-skills. These valuable skills will ultimately prepare you for adult life when you leave The Lady Elizabeth School and move on to University.

There will always be someone on hand in the Boarding house to offer assistance, guidance, encouragement and of course a listening ear to help you settle in and grow and develop throughout your time here. I hope you will take every opportunity to become an established and valued member of the boarding community. There will be ample opportunity for your personal growth and development, not just within academia, but also in your leisure and free time, with opportunities to go on trips and excursions at weekends as well as social events and competitions in the Boarding House. Finally, I hope that when it is time to leave us, you will take with you very happy, long lasting memories of some of your happiest times at school, as well as the friendships you make during your time at The Colegio benitachell  and boarding community.

For further information, please download a copy of our September Timetable and Menu for boarders, together with a copy of the Pupil and Parent Handbook, and feel free to contact our Head of Admissions & Marketing, Sra. Isabel Calatayud who will be pleased to help you.
