Dicker offers separate accommodation for boys and girls and most bedrooms have two, three or four beds. Every house has its own communal space for students to relax.
Students share their bedroom with children of a similar age and from different countries which helps them to mix, speak English and forge new friendships. Bedrooms in some houses are arranged in little apartments where there is one bathroom for every two to three bedrooms. In other houses, there are communal bathrooms on each floor. Bede’s staff are residential and live and sleep in the same boarding houses as the students.
They are available 24 hours a day to deal with any problems that may arise, even in the middle of the night. Each house has a dedicated House Parent who is responsible for the smooth running of the house and for students’ comfort and well-being. There are daily house registers and meetings to ensure all students are present and aware of the day’s schedule. There is also a noticeboard in each house for information and messages. A laundry service, overseen by the House Parent, is offered to students at least twice per week and is included in the fee. Every week, an unannounced fire drill will take place to make sure that students are aware of the evacuation procedure.
Bede’s will decide which houses will be used for boys/girls according to the number of enrolments in each week. Some houses may be used for a particular age range. We accept accommodation requests, but these are subject to availability on arrival and cannot be guaranteed
