Boarding life at Preston provides almost endless opportunities for personal development. There is abundant time for study, sports, co-curricular activities, for quiet reading and meditation and for simply enjoying the company of mates.
The family atmosphere at Preston provides a secure environment within which strangers rapidly become friends. The house fathers and house mothers liaise closely with other teachers to monitor the quality of the students' prep and other academic work. Most importantly, the house parents carry a major responsibility for the happiness and integration of students.
The activities of the house parents are coordinated by the head of boarding.
