Boarding at Pangbourne

New life has been injected into the boarding programme in the last couple of years, say students, who cite comedy evenings, magic evenings, Come Dine With Me house competitions, among others.GOOD SCHOOLS' GUIDE 2019

Pangbourne has a flourishing events programme for boarders, with activities every weeknight, weekend trips out, and occasional special events. We continue to improve and introduce new activities and events for boarders each year.

Boarders themselves take ownership of activities and events and have a strong say in what is on offer. Through surveys, sign-up emails, and consultation groups, boarders provide their feedback and thoughts on all the activities and trips on offer. This process enables the College to provide the best experience possible.

One of the biggest positives about being a boarder is being able to try different hobbies and activities that you haven’t done before, both on and off campus. Trips have included paintballing, ice skating, Thorpe Park, go-karting and a festive visit to Winchester Christmas Market, while the College has hosted evenings with comedy, magic, fire breathing and inflatables on site.

The College also hosts several hugely popular special events worth staying in for, including Pangbourne’s Got Talent, Divisional Come Dine With Me and Pangbourne Does Bake Off.

Weekend trips and activities planned for 2019 include a chocolate making workshop, a visit to Harry Potter World, shopping, a pamper party, a pool party, and an action assault course.
