Boarding - Activities

Weekday Activity Schedule for Autumn Term 2016


Mystery Activity - This might be an orientation or team building activity, exploring a new place, participating in the Boarders' Challenge or learning a new skill.


Sports Activity - Basketball, football, rounders and gym visits are just some of the sports we do on Tuesday evenings. Swimming is offered every Tuesday straight after school.


Arts Activity - Painting, sketching, paper craft, working with textiles, making gifts, creating group murals, graphic design...boarders are encouraged to use range of media to express their creativity and learn new skills.


Media Activity - Leaning to communicate effectively is an essential component of boarding life and that is why on a Thursday evening we focus on activities such as music making, drama, public speaking, film making, creative writing and current affairs.


Optional Activity - Free time to pursue personal interest and hobbies is important, so on a Friday night we encourage boarders to do just that.  In order that nobody feels left out, we also provide a structured activity which focuses on social skills- such as playing board games, table tennis tournaments or enjoying a film together.
