A full residential experience
We want to make sure your child has everything they need to succeed and reach their full potential while studying at Bell. Boys and girls have separate accommodation blocks on site, each with a dedicated houseparent to ensure 24/7 supervision and care throughout their time at Bell.
We separate accommodation blocks for boys and girls. Bedrooms are shared, with bunk beds, wardrobes, chest of drawers, and a chair for each student. They can accommodate two to five students. Where possible, we mix students from different countries in the bedrooms, so they can practice speaking English and learn about other cultures.
Bathrooms are also separated for boys and girls, and for junior and senior courses. There are shared showers and toilet facilities, which are situated at convenient points throughout the accommodation.
Bedrooms and bathrooms are cleaned regularly, with fresh bed linen provided weekly. Students are responsible for making sure their room is tidy and will have regular room inspections. There is a free laundry service for machine washable clothes once a week.
Please note: towels and hair dryers are not provided.
There is a dedicated houseparent for each accommodation block to ensure the safety and well-being of students when they are not in class.
All students will attend a daily house meeting led by their houseparent where they will have the opportunity to discuss what they have achieved and share any concerns.
Students are offered a choice of nutritious food at each mealtime: breakfast, lunch and dinner. Every menu includes a selection of hot and cold items including fresh fruit and vegetables. Packed lunches are provided on study tours.
Snacks are available during break times and at each evening house meeting. If your child has a dietary requirement associated to an allergy, please let us know so we can accommodate this.
Getting to and from Bell Badminton School
We provide a high standard for your child from the moment they land in the UK. Our dedicated Young Learners team will manage everything on arrival and departure days, including coordination, communication, and supervision to ensure your child’s safety and well-being.
Of course, you may want to travel with your child and bring them directly to the school. We can also arrange for this with the school.
