" #iloveboarding because as a Sixth Form student. I have the privilege of an en suite room to myself.  This allows me additional privacy which I enjoy. I can decorate my room as I choose as I haven’t got to consider the needs of anyone else. I am encouraged to take more responsibility around the boarding house, and for my own study,  which I like because I am treat like a young adult rather than a child.  I have a good relationship with the House Parents – they encourage my interests, and encourage and support my uniqueness."
