Boarding at Urspring.

Our pupils live in manageable groups and have plenty of opportunities to meet up and use their free time for inspiring activities. This is also the basis for the arrangements for accommodation, supervision, homework and leisure activities. And we are pleased to be able to provide a suitable environment for this approach.

There are 16 mentors living at the boarding school together with the girls and boys, some with their own families. The mentors always live in their own self-contained apartments. They are responsible for their particular group and at the same time are the first point of reference for any personal or other issues associated with life at Urspring. The mentors are also the direct contact for parents.

Most mentors also work as teachers as part of our concept of teaching and learning. This system results in a high degree of familiarity between pupils and mentors, since the children are not supervised by several individuals on a shift system but in normal circumstances, they are always able to speak to the same person about any problems they may have. In return, this minimal distance has a positive impact on day-to-day lessons, because pupils not only have a subject teacher standing in front of them in the classroom but a person with whom they have much in common from their boarding experience. To ensure that this closeness between mentor and pupil remains professional at all times, we have structures in place to maintain an essential professional distance. All staff at Urspring have pledged to adhere to a code of values which has been specifically drawn up and approved for this purpose.

A first "place of your own".

At Urspring, girls and boys live in different houses divided into smaller groups which we call mentorates. Normally, two children or young people share a room. There are single rooms as well, but these are the exception. Depending on the building, there are larger and smaller rooms providing a wide range of accommodation. They all have one thing in common, though: with a bit of imagination, you can make them your home.

Urspring is a special place.

For me, Urspring is a place where children can find their roots and inspiration for life along the way.
