A majority of Headfort’s pupils board either from Monday to Friday or for the full week. A significant minority, however (around 35-40%), choose to come to us as day pupils.

We offer a busy, exciting day full of action until 6:00 p.m.or later, and this long day appeals to many families whose children like to experience most of what the boarders enjoy. Day pupils may sleep at the school should their parents be away from home for a few days, or simply to try it out because they are curious.

Quite a few day pupils choose to board for their final year or two.
