Hostel (Waterfield House)

Waterfield House, the high school hostel, is a spacious, modern facility attached to the main buildings and in close proximity to all school activities. Learners enjoy the facilities and security of the school at all times.

The hostel caters for high school learners. Learners up to Grade 11 share pleasant four-bed dormitories, while Grade 12 learners have their own rooms. The sunny dining room is serviced by a catering company that supplies three healthy meals daily. Facilities include a prep room, music rooms, TV and recreation rooms, a coffee room for matrics, and a computer network. A fully equipped sick bay and an in-house laundry are provided.

The house mother and the matrons ensure the efficient running of the hostel and supervise the boarders. Rules and regulations enable successful management, providing a harmonious living environment. Certain academic staff members assist boarders as tutors during study periods in the evening.

Learners staying at the hostel are encouraged to participate with typical “boarder spirit” in all facets of school life. Special-event dinners and interaction with boarders from Collegiate’s brother school, Grey High, contribute to their social life.

At Waterfield House learners develop independence, self-discipline and the ability to look after themselves. Through interacting with others outside their immediate family, the boarders grow and become aware of the broader community and its needs.
