At Abbotsleigh, we make it our highest priority to ensure that all girls in our boarding school are nurtured and supported within a safe and secure environment. 

Boarder leave

While we know that our boarders love being at Abbotsleigh, sometimes it's nice to go out with family and friends.

Meet the Head of Boarding

My caring boarding staff and I support the girls to reach their academic, social and emotional potential. We love to watch them gain independence and success in a structured environment based on mutual respect and the Christian values of the School. 


Head of BoardingMrs Rochelle Wiley joined Abbotsleigh as Dean of Middle School in 1999, a role she held for five years before becoming Head of Boarding in 2005.

Rochelle studied modern languages and English at university and has a particular interest in learning support and special education. Her passion is pastoral care however, and she loves to work with the boarders to encourage a community atmosphere of mutual care and encouragement and to equip them for independence in a life beyond Abbotsleigh.

Come and meet Rochelle at one of our tours.
