Note for Boarders
Please note the Boarders Travel Days at the beginning and end of term when we provide free airport transfer from Heathrow airport. Please make sure that flights are booked well in advance to arrive and depart on these dates. If there is a genuine reason for a late arrival, we ask that parents telephone the College on +44 (0) 118 983 2644 or email boarding@padworth.com before the first day of term. Similarly students must not leave before the end of term unless they have sought the Principal’s permission before booking a flight. We hope that you will work with us to ensure that all students make the most of their opportunity to study at Padworth.
