Boarding at St. George's offers learning experiences what pupils learn in the classroom and form an integral element of boarding life. Clubs and activities are offered by the school most weekdays, between 4.00pm and 6.00pm. Between one and three clubs and activities per week are compulsory for boarders, depending on their year group. In addition, boarders-only activities are held throughout the afternoons and evenings during the week.
Activities are offered to boarders on both Saturdays and Sundays at weekends. These range from on-site activities such as fitness club, football matches and service activities, to off-site activities such as skiing during the winter, mountain or water based activities during the autumn and summer terms, and shopping trips, cultural excursions and various workshops. Some weekend activities are compulsory for Years 6 to 10, and we strongly encourage the older pupils to take up these opportunities too.
We encourage pupils to pursue existing hobbies, and while many varied clubs and activities are offered at St. George’s, some activities are provided through local clubs.
