Boarders' Co-curricular Activities

Boarders have access to a fantastic range of activities on every day of the week. There are a huge range of clubs on every day from Monday-Friday. Boarders also then have their own regular activities which run every weekend, such as Cookery club or extra sports practices. And on Sundays there is almost always a trip out somewhere exciting.

Our Boarders have had so much fun this year. We have been climbing, trampolining, go-kart racing, had an incredible Fireworks Display and Halloween party, had fun dry-slope skiing and visited Chistlehurst Caves. 

Our close proximity to the attractions in London enable us to see the sights on a regular basis. We visited the Tower of London, London Eye and the Victoria and Albert Museum, the Science museum and took a boat ride along the River Thames.

There are also many activities on-site, including great Craft and Cookery workshops and Sporting activities. 

We have held regular themed dinner events, including a spectacular Spanish night with great tapas and Spanish dancing, Chinese New Year, French Night, a Great British evening and many more.

Regular weekly activities

Royal Russell has an extensive range of activities running for all pupils at lunchtimes and after school. Among the most popular are Sport clubs (e.g. Football, tennis, hockey, basketball, tennis, table-tennis, netball and swimming), Music (e.g. Jazz Band, Swing Band and Choir), Drama, CCF (Combined Cadet Force) and Model United Nations (MUN). Some of the more unusual include Bridge Club, Scratch Game Creation Club, Driving School and Puzzles & Games Club. There are also opportunities for pupils to learn another language outside of normal lessons.

Regular weekend activities for boarders

Boarders have access to the sports facilities during the weekend as well as their own in-house facilities. There are also regular activities such as Cooking club and Japanese language lessons. If all else fails it is only 8 minutes on the tram to the fantastic selection of shops and restaurants in Croydon.

Boarders Activities – Sunday trips

There are an amazing range of trips available for all ages on Sundays. We are always seeking boarders opinions to see where they would like to go. Trips such as go-karting, Thorpe Park Theme Park and 3-D Cinema are always popular. But there are many more. This year we have had several Craft Workshops on site which have proved very popular.

If there is nothing here that you like the look of, you could always try a run around our beautiful woodland Cross-Country running course!
