Blogs and News - St George's School For Girls, Edinburgh
I enjoyed boarding because the environment at Houldsworth is very friendly and makes you feel very welcome. Most of my free time is spent playing sports and when I get home I do homework and sleep! Staying in the boarding house gave me more free time as it wasn’t spent travelling across the city on a train. I’m thinking about possibly boarding a few nights during my GCSEs if I have an early morning exam, and even though you are basically living at school it’s really fun and completely different to what I thought it would be.
I thought sharing a room would be difficult as I’m someone who likes my own space, but I really liked it because you still have your own space. A great thing about boarding is that you can leave for school without having to rush into a car or bus, and also you can have breakfast and then go back to bed!
