Optional Exeats

At St Lawrence we have always had the same policy regarding Exeat weekends. Being a full boarding school with Saturday school it means that everyone is on campus six days out of seven and boarding and day pupils are together.  On an Exeat weekend it just means that Saturday lessons don’t happen. There are five exeat weekends during the year (September, November, January, March and May), and whilst boarders may go out to stay with family, guardians or friends, they are equally welcome to stay and enjoy a relaxing time in their boarding houses, join in with a full programme of activities, and may visit local shops, restaurants and cinemas.

Boarders can stay at School over Exeat weekends or go home if they wish, the choice is theirs.


“The school is successful in providing opportunities for pupils of all abilities to gain academic success and develop their individual talents.”
