Outside the classroom
What activities and sports do students at a British boarding school do in their spare time?
Extra-curricular activities are a fundamental part of boarding school life. Students have the opportunity to gain experience and develop skills in many different areas. Traditionally schools offer a variety of sports, music, art and drama programmes at different levels. The facilities for those are usually state of the art and teachers and coaches are specialists in their field.
Some schools focus on certain disciplines and therefore are able to attract talent and reach a very high level. Academies include: Hockey, Football, Golf, Tennis, Swimming, Rowing, Horse Riding, Rugby, Fencing, Music, Choir, Dance and Drama.
