One of the key features of boarding school life is the full range of activities and experiences, which gives boarders opportunities to develop skills and interests beyond the academic curriculum. These skills and interests often contribute to career development.
Sports and hobbies, dance and drama, music and art, public speaking, pottery and much more are all on offer at most boarding schools, and most activities are included in the school fees.
Many leisure activities have links with other schools and the wider community.
Competitions, for individuals and teams, cover everything from sport to public speaking and take place both within the UK and overseas.
