WEEKEND TRIPS & ACTIVITIES OVERVIEW
There is never a dull moment at Queen Anne’s for both boarders and day girls. Weekends are always an exciting time and many varied trips and activities are on offer in a programme that the girls are always involved in putting together. They might be visiting the Clothes Show in Birmingham, the latest exhibition at the National Gallery or trying out their skills with zip wiring at ‘Go Ape’. Whatever the venue, girls can enjoy spending time together enjoying cultural events or facing new challenges – the great outdoors with the Bushcraft Company in Oxford or at Bray Lakes Watersports Centre is always popular for the brave-hearted! There is something for everyone.
Our equine enthusiasts can attend the Royal Windsor Horse Show as well as the Horse of the Year Show. Sports enthusiasts can enjoy watching rugby or ice hockey matches, perform ice skating tricks at Somerset House, or challenge your friends at laser paintball in Guildford. For those who just want to relax? Well, dinners out and shopping in various locations, or people-watching in the local cafes in Caversham always offer a welcome break from the academic rigours of Monday to Friday school.
There is an exciting range of activities on offer at at Queen Anne’s. Activities include bowling, ice-skating, shopping or theatre trips, watersports days, visits to places of interest and much more. There are often socials with nearby boys’ schools which include Wellington College, The Oratory School, Pangbourne College, Shiplake College and Radley. Both day and boarding girls take part in the weekend trips and activities.
