Common !!Common elements in the Boarding School genre includeinclude the following:



* A bully.



* Fagging, the (mostly obsolete) practice of younger students (the fag) acting as servants for the elder ones (the fag-master)--in return, the elder student is supposed to mentor and protect the fags serving him. Has nothing to do with either homosexuality or cigarettes (usually).
** The term derives from the fact that they used to have to chop and haul firewood (faggots) for the upperclassmen.

* Ursula Nordstrom's classic ''The Secret Language'' is set at Coburn Home School, which has both boys and girls; mostly middle-class children of single parents who have to work a lot. The education, food and accommodations are all right but newcomer Victoria North, aged eight, is [[FragileFlower severely homesick]] and a bossy, military-style housemother doesn't help. {{Snarker}} and [[GoodWithNumbers math whiz]] Martha Sherman connects with Victoria and teaches her the three words of a "secret language", a kind of doubletalk made up by a close friend. They both learn from each other and face life in their own styles.

* Most of the first decade's worth of Creator/PGWodehouse's books, including ''Mike'', which introduces the character ''Literature/{{Psmith}}''. He had a couple different ones, of which at least St. Austin's and Wrykyn are the setting of more than one story. Neither are [[BoardingSchoolOfHorrors horrible]], but do have a strong focus on sports (cricket and football being the main ones) and house-pride.

* ''Fanfic/ChildOfTheStorm'' has a slightly meta example in that the author periodically makes reference to attending/having attended a British Boarding School, with the odd, slightly dark comment about what it's like, and the occasional confirmation that Hogwarts is very true to life. Doesn't, however, often come across since most of the action is set outside of Hogwarts.

Particularly violence. Doesn't, however, often come across since most of the action is set outside of Hogwarts.

* ''Literature/HarryPotter'' is set in one of these. Creator/JKRowling's great achievement is not so much the fantasy fiction element of the Potter novels, but that she reinvented and breathed new life into what was by the start of the 21st Century a moribund cliché'd genre - the boarding school novel.
** Rowling confirmed in July 2015 in answer to a fan dispute that Hogwarts is not a fee-charging school, however; all tuition is paid for by the Ministry of Magic.
