Theme Weeks are held during the autumn term, devoted to themes that will capture the imagination of all boys. These have included memorable periods of history, including the Medieval Period, the Renaissance, Industrial Revolution, Victorian Era, and First World War, but we have also celebrated an entire week of 'Flight', ‘Power, 'Walking with Giants' and all things S.T.E.M. related.
These themes have enabled boys to study topics in the context of each subject in the school curriculum, whether that be in science, music, drama, English, history, French or sport. Whatever the theme in question, the weeks have always concluded with a delicious feast/banquet/meal at which staff have turned out in elaborate fancy dress befitting the occasion. These weeks have proved wonderfully educational for the boys and a highlight of the year for all concerned.
