    A day in the life of…

    The day for an Abingdon boarder begins with breakfast at 7.30am. This is
    followed by registration and the school timetable then gets underway. It
    takes only two morning lessons for the full force of a boarder’s appetite
    to return. Luckily, food is at hand once more, with break-time snacks
    available in the boarding house kitchen. After the school day ends, the
    boarders encounter another food-based ritual in the form of 5 o’clock teas,
    where the most prized sandwiches hurriedly disappear. The boarders then
    have a couple of hours to relax in their rooms, go to the gym, play sport or
    walk into town before making their way to dinner. Dinner is followed by
    registration where students are updated on house-related news and evening
    arrangements. Boarders then have 90 minutes to do prep before an evening
    activity with the duty teacher and then it’s time for bed.
    At weekends there is a full programme of activities including wide-ranging
    trips from visiting museums to shopping and the cinema plus activities such
    as paint balling and socials with other schools.
