Weekend Activities

We offer a range of exciting activities at the weekend and as we have no Saturday school we are able to make the most of the day and take advantage of our excellent location.

Every Saturday there is an offer of a local afternoon activity or a full day trip, ranging from a trip to the local cinema to an exciting Day trip to the Harry Potter Studios.

On a Saturday evening there is always a social event to give pupils the chance to spend quality time together.

Sunday’s allow time to enjoy the outstanding sports facilities and grounds and to spend some quiet time catching up with friends and completing homework.

Not included in the formal programme is also the opportunity to undertake the following activities locally: Skiing or use of the Golf driving range at Suffolk Leisure Park; Indoor Climbing at Avid Climbing Centre; participating in on site Hockey club; learning sailing or paddle sports at Alton Water; joining a local performing arts group.

Most of these activities are included in school fees for boarding pupils, however there may be some additional charge for trips with an entrance fee such as Harry Potter studios or Winter Wonderland. These will be added to school fee invoices.
