Once upstairs the boarders will shower and then have time to relax and chat with friends/use the telephone/play games/read until Lights out

 8.15 pm Lights out times are staggered according to age from 8.15 pm for the youngest boarders until 9.30 pm for the Year 8s.

Saturday routine is slightly different: in the autumn and spring terms everyone comes up at 6.30 pm, has hot chocolate and biscuits then settles down to enjoy a movie. On Sundays they get up half an hour later and go to bed half an hour earlier than the usual routine, so that everyone can get an early night before the start of another busy week. In the summer term, bedtimes are half an hour later to take advantage of the light evenings.
