Every year the College invites Grade 6s and 7s to Sleepover over the course of a weekend. The purpose of the Sleepover is to expose pupils to a taste of Boarding, show them the campus and meet the staff and pupils. We believe that in the case of College Boarding, a few hours for an Open Day just isn’t enough to make an informed decision. There are two Sleepovers per year, one in March and the other in September, giving more opportunity to find a weekend that suits you! Please join us for our next Sleepover on the 7th March 2020. Kindly note that to make the necessary provisions we need bookings to be in latest Monday 2nd March.
Saturday 7th March
Sleepover children will need to be dropped off at the Alan Staples Centre/Theatre on the College campus at 15h00 for registration and group allocation. Parents will be taken on a tour of the boarding houses upon arrival. Please do not drop and go! Following a short welcome to everyone from Kean Broom, the College Headmaster, and a treat from the College Drama department there will be an optional tour for parents of the school grounds while our young guests are treated to the excitement of Science. The children are integrated into the programme for the evening with the usual boarding dinner and evening routines.
Sunday 8th March
The day starts with a simple breakfast for the children at 08h00 followed by a special programme within their groups. Parents we invite you to join us for an Information Brunch served from 10h30 at the College Sports Pavilion. The Pavilion is situated between the Astroturf and the Holford sports field. Your children will join you again at the Pavilion before signing out. Siblings are more than welcome to attend the Information Brunch, please include them in your catering numbers.
For any parents/children requiring special dietary requirements, these are easily accommodated if indicated on the booking forms.
