Year 6 boarder Mencia explains why she loves boarding
"When I first came to St Mary's, I felt sad about leaving my family but all the staff members and boarders made me feel at home. It's like a big family. We go on lots of trips like to the Harry Potter Studios, Botanic Garden and punting. We also do lots of crafts like decorating cookies. The food is really good - you can't resist putting lots of food on your plate! The bedrooms are really big and comfortable. I was impressed. But the best thing about boarding is living with your friends."
