In her book, Boarding School Syndrome: The Psychological Trauma of the “Privileged” Child, Joy Schaverien identified a cluster of symptoms and behaviours, which she classified as ‘Boarding School Syndrome’.The premise is that children sent to boarding school at an early age suffer the sudden and irrevocable loss of their primary attachments, leading to a significant trauma. Multiple contributing factors may add to this trauma – sudden exposure to life in apparent captivity, abrupt severance of familial relationships and transition through adolescence in unfamiliar settings. Moreover, the children may also be unsafe because, in some schools, they might be at the mercy of bullies and sexual predators.
