Considering this for my DCs and like the IB and location etc but concerned that there aren't enough boarders - can anyone help with details on strength of boarding. We are too far away for weekly to work.
Thanks.

Mine are both day students, but have lots of boarder friends. As I understand it, there are about 120/130 full boarders, so a good number in a smallish school. I know that there are weekend events, trips/outings for the boarders. Quite a few boarders are from elsewhere in Scotland - Aberdeen and Inverness area, for instance - but mainly they're overseas or expats as you'd expect. The boarders can be signed out to walk into town, meet up with their day friends, go to the beach etc. Lots obviously play golf, several go riding. Have been told that the boarding houses are being revamped in the summer holidays.
Hope that helps.
