Life at Bosworth

Bosworth Hall and three of our supervised boarding houses overlook a five-acre park called The Racecourse. The Racecourse is ideal for outdoor sports with football being the most popular. In the same vicinity, we have use of a sports hall where, in the evenings and at weekends, students can participate in a number of indoor sports: badminton, basketball, volleyball, table-tennis and 5-a-side football.

Each week we provide an enrichment session and students can elect to participate in a range of different activities. These vary each term, but activities include: yoga, football, photography, art, knitting, Mandarin, bead craft, running, debating, guitar playing and chess.

Bosworth’s Student Council are heavily involved in arranging the Winter and Summer Balls as well as organising annual fundraising events. Those who take part in the Student Council have a lot of fun. Other evening and weekend activities are on offer for students to join in and these include rock school and self-defence classes (Jado) as well as Saturday trips to areas of interest in the UK, e.g. Oxford and Cambridge.

We can arrange individual music lessons in School for a variety of different instruments from beginner to diploma level. Grade examinations can be organised at the Northampton School of Music. Rock School students perform at the Christmas and summer concerts, along with many other talented students who wish to take part.

Every year new events and activities evolve; these are very often driven by the interests of new students who are encouraged to stand for election to the Student Council. Our website provides further details regarding student activities and events.

The School Day

The school day starts at 09:00 and runs until 15:45. Students in Years 7 to 11 will have lessons throughout the day; students in Year 12 and 13 will have lessons and study halls. All students are expected to remain in school during the day. This is monitored through a regular registration system.

Students have access to Wifi to support homework and self-study requirements. Internet restrictions are in place to avoid social media distraction, which is supports focused study and prepares for further independent time management at university and beyond.

Northampton – Heart of England

Bosworth is located in Northampton, a town with a rich and distinguished history, situated in the heart of England. With London, Oxford or Birmingham only an hour away by road or rail, it is the perfect learning environment in a central location.

Northampton is a large market town with lots to offer in terms of tourism, entertainment, leisure and shopping. The town is surrounded by beautiful countryside. Because of its central location, we are only an hour away from other tourist locations such as; Stratford-upon-Avon, Warwick, Cambridge, Oxford and London.

Northampton offers the perfect environment for our students with the town centre just a fifteen-minute walk from the School, where students can enjoy the leisure and shopping facilities. The School’s location, however, promotes focus on study as the distractions of a bustling city centre are not right on our doorstep.
