Weekend Activities

After homework has been done, there are a range of evening activities for boarders, such as badminton in the sports hall; swimming in the pool; playing on the Wii in the common room; chatting over coffee and biscuits in the kitchen or practising music.

At the weekends, activities include ten-pin bowling, ice-skating, cinema trips, paintballing, boat trips, pitch and putt golf, moorland walking, surfing and dry-slope skiing. This level of contact in adventurous environments has beneficial effects in other areas.

For instance, the staff might seek to build on the growing self-confidence that often comes from these activities and direct it towards classroom performance or to developing a greater sense of individual responsibility. Occasionally, there are quieter weekends to allow for a complete rest and change of pace. Boarding at Plymouth College provides a unique residential experience for a location so close to the city centre as well as the beautiful moors and beaches of the South West.
