Cothill House

A typical day

All boys at Cothill are boarders, and follow a daily routine that quickly becomes familiar, although it varies depending on the day of the week. Wednesdays and Saturdays are always half days, when there are lessons in the morning and matches in the afternoons.

Sports (games) take place every day during the week except on Thursdays, when the afternoons are set aside for extra-curricular clubs instead. Prep takes place between 6.15-7.15pm every weekday evening, apart from Wednesday, when the evening is dedicated to boarding activities, although the Juniors (Years 4 & 5) will often be busy doing woodwork, design and pottery.

A typical Junior’s day during the winter terms is detailed below. The Senior afternoon is listed below and is very similar to the Junior day with slightly later meal times. A short video, providing a taste of life at Cothill, can be seen below.
