Mrs Halcyon Meldrum
Head of Boarding
Welcome to our Boarding Community.
At our boarding houses, Somerville (Girls, Years 5-11), Gardiner (Boys, Years 5-11), and Fawcett (Mixed, Years 12 and 13), we pride ourselves on creating a close-knit family atmosphere that fosters a sense of belonging and support. Here, we cherish every boarder as an individual and go the extra mile to meet their unique needs, providing exceptional pastoral care and reassuring families back home that their child is in safe hands, 24 hours a day.
Our dedicated boarding staff work hand in hand with teachers to ensure that each student reaches their full academic and personal potential.
Saint Felix School’s safe, enchanting location, situated near the picturesque seaside town of Southwold, offers our boarding community a tranquil escape from bustling city life. Sitting in 75 acres of countryside, surrounded by nature’s beauty, our boarders can find inspiration and focus while creating lifelong memories with peers.
Our enticing activity programme ensures that every boarder has opportunities to explore and try new experiences. From mid-week adventures to exciting weekend trips, we organise visits to nearby cities like Norwich and Cambridge, thrilling activities like bowling and cinema outings, and opportunities to delve into the charms of our local area.
We warmly welcome international students who wish to improve their language skills. Our diverse school community celebrates cultural exchange, enriching the lives of all boarders and broadening their perspectives.
