On Fridays, boarders can either go home at the end of afternoon school or stay in school for the weekend. The school allows unrestricted exeats at the weekend and, apart from when important fixtures, rehearsals or performances are taking place, applies no pressure on students either to stay or return home.
Alongside our many and varied extracurricular activities offered after school on weekdays and open to all students, boarders are offered shopping, theatre and cinema trips as well as impromptu sports matches, pamper evenings, barbecues and so on. There is also a regular social night open to Sixth Form boarders and day students alike.
These events are not compulsory because we also know that boarders enjoy the different pace of the houses at weekends, when they can relax and unwind just as they would at home.
