During term, there are a variety of weekend activities in which our students can participate. These are usually structured between meals and evening study, where possible. Trips which are typically offered on Saturday afternoons include:
Students begin the day at the later time of 8.30 am on Sunday. The entire campus community attends Mass in the Abbey Church at 10:00 am. Students from each boarding house have some involvement at the liturgy, which includes, acting as a server, carrying up the offertory gifts, singing in the choir and reading.
All are welcome to the Community Mass at 10.00 am on Sunday mornings and coffee is served in the Barrington Room in the castle building immediately afterwards. Students are free after Mass and they may go out with family members or choose to participate in the organised activities which normally take place on Sunday afternoons. A wide range of activities is offered, including cinema, swimming, bowling, surfing and go-karting.
