Events & Activities
Pupils have a lot of fun in their free time! Having full use of the extensive park and being given a large amount of freedom to explore and develop independence enables them to take responsibility for their own actions and to fill their time creatively and enjoyably.
Pupils are encouraged to make the most of their time, and with highly qualified and enthusiastic staff giving guidance in workshops and organised activities, parents can be sure that the children are developing skills and interests which take them far beyond the classroom.
In the summer months, pupils make the most of the grounds particularly after supper when the cricket nets, tennis courts and swimming pool, not to mention the 9 hole golf course, resound with the chatter of happy children. In the winter when the evenings draw in, there are a many activities which take place under staff supervision: sudoko, football, crafts, art, dodge ball, indoor cricket nets are just a few examples.
