Autumn Term 2017 Weekend Events
Our weekends are designed to be busy, diverse and perhaps most importantly a great deal of fun! Every Sunday starts with letter writing and chapel followed by a diverse range of activities for children to get stuck into throughout the day, whatever their interests.
Click on the poster for a detailed breakdown of the main Saturday and Sunday events this term. These are supplemented by a full program of events throughout the weekends.
Sandroyd is predominantly a boarding school and therefore all staff get involved in the weekend activities. We also have a number of staff and their families living on site and this goes a long way to create the family feel at the weekends. Indeed visiting boarding parents will often join us for Sunday lunch.
We have on average about 75 boarders staying over the weekend on a Saturday night. On some Saturday nights we will have over 100 boarders, and on our quietest weekends we will have between 40 and 50. This allows us to tailor our weekends depending on our numbers. On the smaller weekends we may jump in minibuses and head off to the coast, whilst on larger weekends we will make the very most of our beautiful surroundings. Most Sundays will always be full of bike rides, dog walks, riding, wide games and other outdoor activities. Cooking, arts and crafts, swimming, apple pressing, are amongst a varied range of indoor activities.
Each weekend tends to have a focus, whether that is: camping in the grounds; raft making; a visit to the Christmas Markets; Coasteering; a halloween disco; school fete; fireworks night…. and the list goes on.
But as well as these events, we also believe that weekends are for children to relax and get ready for the week ahead. It is important for them to choose to have some downtime with a good book or a game of table tennis in the “Middle”, or perhaps even a good old fashioned chat!
All of our weekends are advertised and summarised in The Sandroyd Times – copies of which can be found below:
