Additional notes for boarders

An Exeat Weekend means that boarding pupils are expected to leave the House once lessons have finished at 4.00pm on Friday to spend the weekend away from school with their family or guardian. An Activities Weekend is one in which all boarders stay at school: during these weekends, activities and events are organised for all boarding pupils.
We advise that flights are booked well in advance so that pupils do not arrive back late at the start of term or indeed leave early at the end. If there are any problems, in the first instance please write to the Housemaster/mistress of your child, who will consult the Principal Deputy Head. Pupils in the Fifth Year and Upper Sixth may book flights to leave following completion of their public examinations in the Summer Term. This must be agreed in advance with the Housemaster/mistress.
At the start of Spring and Summer Terms, boarding houses will not open until 8.00am. Boarders are expected to return no later than 6.00pm. Following an Exeat Weekend or Half Term (except for the October Half Term), boarding houses will not be open until 5.30pm. Boarders are expected to return by 8.30pm on these occasions. We ask parents and guardians to ensure that their child does not arrive back at school before the boarding house is open.
