“Boarders are proud of their achievements”


Whilst the weekly boarders go home for the weekend, full boarders live at school every night of the week with the exception of two exeat weekends per term.  On the exeat weekends overseas boarders who are unable to go home may visit friends or a guardian, providing the school is notified and parental permission given.

On the weekends a variety of activities and educational trips are offered, ranging from trips to the cinema, pantomime, museums, ice-skating or visiting the local BMX track. In addition, there are activities scheduled on site including barbeques, cake decorating or just watching a film and eating popcorn.

During the week pupils may join a number of after school activities, including Scouts, Guides, Judo, Gym and Youth Groups.

All of these activities provide an enhanced educational experience for our pupils, giving them the opportunity to try new things, develop skills, form friendships and have fun.
