Why Stamford

We know that boarding at a young age can be a daunting adventure for all of the family, even more so for the families of those in HM Forces. At Stamford, we have a long history of working with Forces families to provide a home from home for their children. A home that provides flexibility around visiting, builds a team of people to nurture and care for your child, and provides the educational expertise to help your child to start their own adventures in learning.

Our Houses

Stamford has seven boarding houses, each with its own unique personality, scattered throughout the town. Our co-ed junior house is St Michael’s, which is situated within the Stamford Junior School grounds and accepts pupils from age 8.

Each house has its own house parent, and a dedicated team of staff comprising tutors and matrons. Mentoring is a big part of our boarding culture: staff and other students – younger or older – give each other help, support, and encouragement without prompting. After school, boarders also receive increased academic support from teachers during homework sessions.


We have a great deal of experience with Continuation of Education Allowance (CEA) applications and are happy to help forces families through this process. Our families only pay the minimum CEA fee on the child’s place at the school.
