    A day in the life of…

    The day starts with breakfast at 7.45am. All meals are taken in the school dining room which resembles Hogwarts with its 100 year old oak tables. The food though is very up to date and amazing with every possible combination of breakfast on offer. Each pupil starts the day by meeting with their tutor before lessons start at 9.00am. Full school Chapel takes place on Mondays and Friday mornings as sees the whole school meet as one. First break occurs after the first two lessons and all boarders return to the dining hall for a snack and drink to keep them going for the rest of the morning. All students are provided with a Macbook Air as one of their resources and the school has an excellent wifi system, doing away with the need for computer labs. Lunch break is after lesson 6 and is an hour long providing time for a run around the fields, a visit to the library or some vital practice time in the music studios. Afternoon lessons finish at 4.20 when all boarders take afternoon tea in the dining hall, which really is a social hub for the school. Activities follow and can be as diverse as riding on our own school farm to learning yoga alongside the usual sports music and arts programme. The boarding houses are all on the school campus and within 5 minutes walk of the main school. After supper at 6.45 students embark on their homework, once this complete they have another opportunity to join in with activities such as basketball, pilates, martial arts and indoor football.
    Weekends have a different routine, students get up much later and enjoy brunch at their leisure. On Saturday’s there are numerous sports fixtures, some academic clinics or the opportunity to venture into the ancient City of Canterbury to the many street cafes. Sunday is a day to relax and or join in one of the regular Sunday trips such as; go-karting, a theatre in London, a premiership football match or fish and chips on the beach.
