Absit weekends are the few weekends in the academic year where the School closes to allow for boarders and boarding staff to have a short break during particularly long terms. On these weekends boarders may choose to visit a friend or may return home to their parents. Others may stay with their guardian.
On an Absit weekend the school closes at 4.40 pm when all day and boarding pupils will be off site. The School will help parents with travel arrangements for boarders who need them.
Boarders will return to school between 5.00 pm and 9.00 pm on Sunday evening. It is very important that these return times are adhered to as it is not possible to guarantee supervision before 5.00 pm.
Dates for Absit weekends can be found on the Term Dates information page.
