Boarding House to close at the end of 2023

As we celebrate our Centenary, it is heartening to see strong demand for places at Medbury in 2024 and beyond. The Trust Board understands the choices that parents face today, including the choice of where their sons will be educated, and we appreciate the trust that is placed in us.

Part of our success is due to Medbury’s willingness to embrace new approaches to learning and to ensure that everything we do is designed to equip our boys for the ever-changing environment they live in.

Following a comprehensive review of boarding at Medbury we have made the decision to close our boarding operation at the end of 2023. Boarding numbers have been in steady decline for the past decade and the continuation of boarding risks impacting our ability to adequately invest in the future of Medbury.

This was not an easy decision and throughout the review process, we have been mindful of the impact this will have on current and future boarding families and on our boarding staff.

Almost half of our current boarders are in their final year at Medbury and therefore won’t be affected. We will work individually with all other boarding families – including those who were due to start at Medbury next year to ensure that all future options are considered for those boys.

We will work closely with our boarding staff and will meet all of our obligations to them. Some of the boarding staff will be able to take up other positions at Medbury.

If you have any questions at this stage, please contact Nick Harvey at or Dave Scott at

The Trust Board wants to take this opportunity to thank all staff who have supported our boarders over the years.
