Weekends are an essential part of the boarding experience, and all day pupils are encouraged to take part in what is going on. After lessons on Saturday mornings, girls have the choice of an impressive range of activities. As well as Fourth Form Games Afternoon, matches and rehearsals, they go on House outings and enjoy the superb school facilities, which are all open at the weekend.
Weekend outings are many and varied and have included: ice skating, go karting, bowling, horse riding, cinema and theatre trips, punting in Oxford, pottery making, craft activities, cookery workshops, pamper parties, trips to the zoo and hawk conservatory, socials with other schools, Company events (such as 'It's a Knockout' - see photo, left) charity initiatives, DofE expeditions and exploring the local area, with cultural visits organised to Marlborough, Bath, Oxford and other nearby towns. From MIV Form, the girls enjoy socials with a variety of boys' schools and we have very good relationships with Eton, Radley, Winchester and Horris Hill.
