I am looking at jobs sport camps in boarding schools in summer. I was advised i can live on site during camp. Can i have my kids with me or is it absolute no-no?

There will be a policy. If they are 16 or over they may need a DBS check. You need to ask their HR.

I think it's highly unlikely that your children could live onsite with you just for the summer if that is what you mean. I would imagine the instructor accommodation will be in a vacant boarding house.

There is staff housing at many boarding schools, however, as a member of staff (IME) whist you fully expect external groups to move into the boarding houses in the holidays you would certainly not expect to give up your staff house.

Were you not looking at getting a full time teaching job in a boarding school? Obviously this would be different and you would be expected to bring your children with you.
