Setting the benchmark in modern boarding facilities, the rooms within the eight apartments are grouped around a central common room and kitchenette, creating a familiar, homely ambience where girls can relax together and feel genuinely at home. Younger girls entering the House for the first time commonly share a twin room, which includes its own ensuite bathroom, while senior girls have the opportunity for a single suite with a study area and private bathroom.

The Walford Boarding House is renowned for its caring, family-like atmosphere, and the diversity it brings to the Walford community, with girls from a variety of backgrounds and cultures.
