Childhood is a time to discover new interests and pursue what you love. Our Hampshire grounds and facilities mean we can offer 60-plus activities – and offering such a wide range of experiences lies at the core of our approach to developing the whole person.
These take place for all children on Mondays, Tuesdays and Thursdays from 16.55 to 17.45. These provide an opportunity to sample, enjoy, develop and improve new skills and experiences. With over 60 activities usually on offer, there is always something new to choose. A full list is available from the school but regulars include DT, rythmic gymnastics, dance, cookery, beekeeping, woodwork, orchestra, art, archery and sporting activities from badminton to volleyball.
These optional activities take place between 09.00 and 12.00 in three individual one-hour sessions. Activities such as fishing, fencing, tennis, orienteering, archery, sailing and kayaking are more suited to Saturdays than in the late afternoon during the week.
