“It’s fantastic. Staff have no idea whether my son is a day boy or a boarder. I think it’s really wonderful — they are so well integrated that it makes no difference. This is unusual.”

  • Leave Weekends (some of which run from Thursday to Sunday) occur in each half term and, depending on the term, pupils may spend up to three other Saturday nights at home at their HM’s discretion. The School is currently reviewing Saturday night arrangements to consider further flexibility.
  • Boarders may leave School every Sunday after Chapel and must be back in School by 9.00pm on Sunday evening.
  • Weekends at Teddies are busy and full of life. Sport, rehearsals, House activities, societies, confcerts, Chapel, DofE and, of course, all the amenities of Summertown and Oxford keep our pupils active and entertained. Read this term’s Weekends Brochure here or below.

  • Day pupils may leave at 6.30pm Monday to Friday if they have no further school commitments but many choose to stay on until 9pm for supervised prep, extra-curricular activities or leisure time with their friends. Day pupils leave School at the close of afternoon games or fixtures – or other school commitments – on Saturdays.
  • There are two to three day places per House per year.



  • Pupils may go into Summertown, a small, bustling ‘village’ 2 minutes from School, at the end of the school day as long as they are with a friend. Summertown is home to many cafés, coffee shops and supermarkets and also features useful retail outlets such as Boots, a bookshop and a stationers’.
  • On Sunday afternoons, pupils may also go into Summertown, or into the centre of Oxford (a 15 minute walk or 5 minute bus ride away), where there is a huge range of shops, cafes, cinemas, galleries and amenities; pupils must be with a friend to visit either location.
