Events and trips
Our events reflect both the cultural background of our overseas boarders alongside many British traditions. These include the Mid-Autumn Festival (Moon Festival), Bonfire Night, Christmas and Chinese New Year.
Alongside regular trips locally we organise a wide-ranging programme of excursions further afield, many of which are suggested by our Boarders’ Council. Previous trips have included Brighton, four days in Paris and a day trip to Alton Towers. Other activities are arranged at weekends and include Go Karting, Paint Balling, Laser Quest and shopping trips to Birmingham and Bicester Designer Outlet Village.
Boarders also have full use of the schools’ fantastic facilities including the swimming pool and indoor sports hall. The boarders’ football and basketball teams play regular matches against teams from other boarding schools and are always well-supported by day pupils.
