Activities in Boarding

Boarders enjoy many activities during the week and at weekends. We encourage a good balance where boarders are free to join as many activities as they like or equally they may choose to relax and socialise with their friends.


  • Every Evening: Homework and study support
  • Mondays: Badminton
  • Tuesdays: Basketball, local supermarket trip
  • Wednesdays: In-house recreational activities such as board and card games, pool, table tennis and table football, etc.
  • Thursdays: Football, local supermarket trip
  • Fridays: Off-campus recreational activities such as ice-skating, yoga, cinema, bowling, horse riding, etc.


  • London Sightseeing
  • Excursions to Oxford, Reading, etc.
  • Trips to the Zoo, Laser Quest, Theme Parks etc.
  • Attending live sport events – football, hockey and more.

There are no fixed weekend leave-outs (‘exeats’) for students.  Any student requesting a leave-out must follow the correct procedure and have written parental/guardian consent.
