Boarding Parents

Elmfield is looking for families who would be interested in becoming Boarding Parents, and are able to offer occasional fairly short-term (one term to one year) boarding to students, who are mostly from other European Steiner Schools. The visiting pupils are usually aged between 14 – 17. They gain a lot from visiting Elmfield and the school also always values their contribution while they are here. However we cannot accept them unless we can find families able to host them. We currently pay £140 per week to host families and more for half term weeks. Please contact Maigread Reynolds (info@elmfield.com)  in the office if you would like more information about this.
