The hallmark of boarding at Pembroke is the provision of a safe, caring and friendly environment, offering a wealth of opportunity for individual development. Boarders are well supported by staff as they make the transition from home and their local school to the Pembroke boarding community.

Boarding staff and teachers maintain regular communication with parents about the progress of their child. Assistance is available to help boarders with their academic development. The daily routine ensures a balanced and organised approach to school, homework, sport, and co-curricular activities and allows time simply to relax, socialise and have fun. The School has a flexible approach to parents visiting and students obtaining weekend leave (with parent permission).

The general care and welfare of our boarders is of paramount importance. Boarding House staff are attentive to the needs of individuals and nurture the development of a caring, friendly, and sensibly disciplined family environment for boarders.

Pembroke School has two boarding houses, Campbell House for boys, located on the King's Campus and Turner House for Girls, located on the Girton Campus.
