There is plenty of free time between sessions to socialise with your fellow students but you will also see from the above that we have an allotted period each day which is named ‘Quiet Hour’. During this time, the house is more calm and relaxed and offers a valuable opportunity for students to recharge their batteries before dinner and the evening session. It might seem strange but it is a well-loved and well-utilised time of the day when students can just chill.
I heard there is a party on the last night, do I have to bring a costume?
You are absolutely right! Yes, we traditionally finish our residential courses with a last night meal that is styled and catered around the theme of our courses for that year. Most of these parties are fully costumed for you but if we need you to bring anything else specifically then we will let you know in advance.
