The rules are there so that everyone can have a good everyday life.

House rules and regulations

Welcome to the community of the Boarding School.

It is surprisingly easy to have over 200 people living under the same roof when everyone knows, understands, and follows the same set of rules.

You have chosen the boarding school as your home for the next period of your youth. It will definitely be an exciting time where you will be in charge of a large part of your daily life.

Therefore, it is important that you read the rules. Please find them in a short version further below on this page.

When you fill out and sign your application to the Boarding School, you are also signing that you will comply with the House Rules.

New students at the boarding school will always receive a presentation of the House Rules as the first thing.

If there is anything you are unsure about, simply ask the boarding school staff.
