Is boarding school a good fit for day students? Absolutely!
Because West Nottingham Academy is a boarding school, our doors never close, We are a school community that lives and breathes 24 hours a day, seven day a week. West Nottingham provides a wide variety of programs and activities both during the week and on weekends, and these activities are open to all members of our student body, whether students live on campus in the dormitory or at home with family.
As a boarding school, our activities and student life options far exceed what is offered at most other high schools. For students, weekend getaways to museums, malls, and sporting events are a perfect way to unwind with classmates. And for parents, it's the piece of mind knowing that students are fully engaged in their high school experience. Attending a boarding school as a day student is also the perfect way to prepare for the dormitory life in college and in life beyond -- day students are welcome to stay overnight in the dorms with their friends and experience life away from home.
At West Nottingham, day students comprise about 15 percent of our students, and we wouldn't be the school we are today without them!
