Day pupils go home at 5.30pm, unless they are doing an after school activity like tennis, debate or speech and drama. Boarders have a quick snack and in the summer term we go straight into boarders’ prep. I had already finished my prep today, so I read my book.
After prep, we have dinner together in the dining room (except on Wednesdays, when we have a BBQ outside!) and then have free time.
Boarding at Westbourne House is amazing. In the evening we can play outside, use the tennis and squash courts, play table tennis or loads of other options. The house parents arrange fun activities in the evenings, such as slip n slide, water fights and treasure hunts. Sometimes we go out of school to the beach or to the cinema.
