Weekends & Activities


We encourage our boarders to take part in a wide range of activities, from making pizza to visiting theme parks and going on bike rides.

During the week there are a range of activities such as dodgeball, swimming, cookery or card games. We also allow pupils to take some down time in the evenings if they choose to do so and they can catch up on homework and write emails home.


On the weekends, we run trips out of school on both Saturday and Sunday, such as cycling in the Forest of Dean, visiting activity centres and local attractions. Our boarders enjoy a varied and exciting programme of activities. This is produced in consultation with our boarders so we ensure they do the things they enjoy most – movie nights, trips to the seaside and canoeing on the river Wye are firm favourites.

There are also trips further afield and with Cardiff and Bristol only a train ride away, pupils can indulge in some high street shopping.
