Free time

There is plenty for the girls to do in their free time and at the weekends.

The girls have complimentary use of a near-by fitness centre. A number of in-house activities are also organised, such as craft sessions, dance and cookery.


There are local trips out to the cinema, ten pin bowling, museums such as Kettle’s Yard and The Scott Polar Institute, galleries and several different theatres. Further afield there are trips to the German Christmas markets in the UK, and a residential weekend excursion in October each year - the girls have visited Brighton, Stratford upon Avon and Edinburgh in recent years, and plan to go to Oxford in 2017. Other trips include a visit to the Harry Potter Studios and ice-skating. There are also activities specifically for boarders including Contemporary Dance. At the weekends there is time for badminton, basketball, tennis and netball as well as making the most of the time to spend on Art projects and Music practice.
