Boarders’ Activities Programme
We offer a wide and varied programme of outings and activities at Rishworth. For the boarders and many day students, the weekends are just as busy as from Monday to Friday. From morning to evening there is much on offer, whether students are day students, flexi-boarders, weekly boarders or full boarders. Not only do our students visit theatres, professional sporting events and local amenities, we also have various expert instructors visiting to run a wide range of specialist activities.
Students have a many extra-curricular activities to choose from. A comprehensive sporting programme operates during lessons, after school and at the weekends. The main team sports are on offer to our students include: rugby, football, hockey, netball, tennis, rounders, swimming and athletics.

Beyond the sports fields, the wide range of activities on offer in the music school and the drama studio keep our students occupied.
