Half term break
Each term has a week-long holiday in the middle called ‘half term’. During this week the boarding house is closed from Friday at 6.00pm until the following Sunday at 6.00pm (or, on UK Bank Holiday weekends, until Monday at 6.00pm). Boarding staff are also on annual leave for the entire week and so students are not permitted to remain in boarding during these holidays.
During Exeat weekends the boarding house is closed, providing the opportunity for girls to stay with their guardians or other relatives and friends. There are usually two Exeat weekends each year: one in the Spring Term and one in the Summer Term.
