Boarding School Day & Weekend Programme

Boarding and day students enjoy a full programme of study and activities at school from Monday to Friday.

During the week students are mainly focused on their school work. The school timetable also includes activities such as music, drama, art and sport and in addition, there is an extensive range of clubs that take place across the two school sites. These can include football, horse riding, golf, gymnastics, swimming, tennis, kickboxing, rock band, singing and other activities such as the Duke of Edinburgh award scheme.

However, at the weekend there are various extra-curricular activities to enjoy:

  • Regular trips to London and other large towns and cities.
  • Theatre and cinema trips.
  • Regular shopping trips to London, Ashford and elsewhere.
  • Weekend use of the extensive schools’ sports facilities including football pitches, tennis courts, swimming pools, badminton courts, basketball courts and fitness gym.
  • Trips to 2 nearby golf courses and equestrian facilities.
  • Regular trips to the beach in the summer months.
  • Participation in competitive matches following selection by the school to various sports teams in particular rugby, football, netball, swimming, basketball, badminton, and hockey
  • Private lessons in most sports including golf, horse riding, music, speech and drama can be arranged on request and will be chargeable extras.

Weekend activities may vary from season to season dependent on various factors. In addition to these planned activities, all students also have the opportunity to use ICT at the boarding house, as well as sport and music facilities at the Senior School. Over the course of the year our aim is to provide students with a mix of cultural pursuits and exciting recreational activities. Teachers also take part in these activities and excursions in order to develop friendly relationships with the boarding community and interact with them outside the classroom.
