Opening the minds of boys is a challenging part of education. School expeditions, outward bound trips, leadership days, a varied activity programme and many outside speakers ensure that there is infinite variety for the boys. Every boy is encouraged to discover new talents and enthusiasms.
Relaxation is a very important part of school life. There are common rooms for the different age groups. Snooker, table tennis and table football produce some great contests. Photography and cookery are two of the most popular clubs on a Thursday afternoon; golf and croquet are summer pastimes and the adventure playground gets constant use. Reading is vitally important and there is ample time in the school day for boys to relax with a book.
There are several expeditions abroad each year, some of them just for a day or two, as we are so near to motorways leading to the Channel Ports and Tunnel. Ski trips are immensely popular. Other trips in the last few years have included a Classics tour to Italy, Rugby Tours to Rome and a Cricket Tour to South Africa.
