Worth has planned an exciting programme of weekend activities and trips for the new academic year including a bird of prey display on campus, a visit to Chartwell House which was Winston Churchill’s home for 40 years and a trip to The Observatory Science Centre.
The co-curricular programme at Worth perfectly complements the Monday to Friday academic timetable, ensuring a measured pace to the week. The weekend programme presents a range of opportunities and is open to day students as well as boarders. It also underlines our commitment to being a 7-day-a-week boarding school.
In addition to the trips listed above such as the bird of prey display for Years 9 to 11 which we are excited about, Saturday daytime activities for the Autumn Term 2023 also include visits to Charles Darwin House, the Sealife Centre at Brighton and the Wings Museum, which is a local aviation museum. There are also a variety of lectures on campus, with some offerings for certain year groups.
The Saturday evening programme includes a casino night, a ‘Night at the Races’ evening on campus, a film night and pizza van, plus the annual Matriculation Ball for Year 12.
Then on Sundays the options include day trips to Brighton, Royal Tunbridge Wells, go karting, airsoft, ice skating at Brighton Pavilion and, in December, Christmas shopping at Bluewater.
Friday evening is also an important part of the weekends programme at Worth and our Autumn Term plans include a Moulin Rouge theatre trip to London, a laser tag activity, bingo night, an It’s A Knockout competition, House Music and an Old Worthian Invitational Debate.
