RI Boarding

At RI Boarding we build a real, tangible sense of community amidst world-class facilities and award-winning boarding services. Over the years, thousands of local and international students have made RI Boarding their home away from home, developing resilience, independence and social skills along the way.

Our boarding quarters consist of four four-storey blocks and a 13-storey block that can accommodate up to 620 students.

Raffles Boarding Programme

The RBP is a capstone cohort-wide programme where all our Year 3 students undertake a 7-week residential experience in Term 1, 2 or 3.

Through a residential stint at RI Boarding with local and international students from RI and neighbouring schools, Rafflesians learn life skills essential for independence, inter-dependence and service to community. The RBP also provides opportunities for personal growth and leadership development through workshops, talks, and experiential activities.
