At the weekend ...

Our weekend boarders enjoy an action packed schedule and are often joined by flexi boarders and day pupils who want to be involved in the weekend’s adventures.

Boarders’ Weekend Diary

Saturday afternoon and evening


Saturday afternoons are always a hive of activity with different year groups participating in the various activities, games and matches.

Saturday evening is film night and after a warm supper, the children settle down with popcorn and lemonade for the big screen event.

Please note that planned activities may be subject to change or substitution at short notice, if required, due to staffing, arising opportunities, weather or boarders’ preferences/ideas.  We recently swapped an indoor activity when the weather turned unexpectedly fine, for a day of kayaking!   

Sunday evening roast supper is served at 6.00pm – one of the highlights of the boarding week – and our boarders and staff sit down to enjoy good food and company together in the Dining Room.  Afterwards, boarders enjoy the tradition of letter writing and quiet time together before bedtime.

Our Sunday activities are open to day pupils and flexi boarders, subject to availability, by registering to board for the Saturday and/or Sunday evening.
