Starville boarding school is a state of the art facility deliberately set up to accommodate students age 11 to 16.
Boarding is full time, with students only leaving the school on official school holidays. The boarding school is cared for by experienced boarding teachers. We aim at bringing back discipline, vocational skills and academic excellence synonymous with the boarding schools of old but in a modern facility. We plan to return your children back to you each term much better than when they left home for school, when you look at all areas of their life. We also ensure that they learn for life with a range of academic, cultural, sporting and social events which ultimately develop independence and initiative.
Boarders at Starville school are members of a unique extended family. They can expect to receive the quality of care and attention that is surpassed only by that received in their loving family homes.
Boarding staff are professional men and women who aim to facilitate a well-balanced school and home experience for your children.
There is certainly no place like home, but young people are good at adapting to new challenges. In their boarding house, the biggest challenge for the student is to be aware of the needs of a number of other people around them, much as they would be expected to do in a larger family. To help them meet this challenge, our boarding staff demand a high level of conformity to routine and encourage the students to develop a sense of community.
Your child will be well cared for and treated with respect. At the same time, the school will challenge him/her to achieve his/her best in all areas so that he/she can makes a valuable contribution to the school community and develop a healthy level of self-respect.
TAGGING OF SCHOOL UNIFORM
We expect all uniform items of our boarders to be tagged for easy identification. We advise that these tags be in inconspicuous places like behind the collar when turned down, waist bands of trousers and skirts, etc.
WE EXPECT THAT ALL UNIFORM ITEMS MUST BE BRANDED OR TAGGED IN THESE VARIOUS POSITIONS:
SCHOOL BLAZER: BEHIND THE COLLAR WHEN UPTURNED.
SCHOOL TROUSER/SKIRT: WAIST BAND
SPORT SHORT/SKIRT: WAIST BAND
SPORTS/ SCHOOL SHIRT: BEHIND THE COLLAR
SCHOOL CARDIGAN: BEHIND THE SCHOOL BADGE EMBROIDERY
SCHOOL SHOES: INSIDE OF SOLES
SCHOOL SOCKS/ TIES: MARKED IN SUCH A WAY THAT THE OWNER’S IDENTITY IS EASILY KNOWN
(MAYBE USING THE FIRST LETTER OF THE NAME IN AN INCONSPICUOUS PLACE)
