There are many clubs and societies to join at School, which take place during the school day. These range from sporting activities, including Horse Riding and Golf, to debating and RC Car club. During the week, the main free time for boarders is between 4.30pm and 6pm. It is really up to each individual as to how they structure their free time, although during this time each pupil is expected to take part in an activity on a regular basis.
Throughout the year the Boarding Houses organise various parties within each house and with the whole boarding community. These include Christmas, Chinese New Year, Easter and Leavers’ Parties. We also celebrate Birthdays and encourage pupils to make gifts for their friends! During the lighter evenings, boarders can take advantage of the wonderful grounds for sport and recreation. Barbecues and picnics are a feature of life at Stover in the warmer months.
Evening activities are usually run by the GAP students, and are conducted around prep times. Currently on offer include sports nights – tennis, baseball, basketball, football, frisbee – pilates, art, dance, craft, textiles, cookery, quiz nights and a cinema nights.
There are Skype laptops in every House and all computers in the Boarding Houses are linked to the Boarders’ Network.
