A Typical Day
There is a standard weekly timetable for lessons at Stowe. On Wednesdays and Saturdays lessons finish at lunch time, with the afternoons being given over to a wide range of sports and activities. On Saturdays the lessons start 15 minutes earlier and have a shorter morning break to allow lessons to finish half-an-hour earlier which helps the away sports fixtures on Saturday afternoons. All other weekdays also have sports and activities after Period 7.
Each Stoic has a copy of this timetable printed in their Stowe 'Blue Book' which contains their own particular academic timetable for the current year showing the location of their lessons, the prep that has been set, their own personal academic targets and other individual information important to them during the year.
At Stowe, our day pupils are attached to a specific boarding House and are fully integrated into life at Stowe, taking part in as many of the extra-curricular and House activities as possible. The number of day pupils in each year group will vary from year to year and House to House, although we do try to keep an eye on the combination each year.
Day pupils are expected to stay for 1st Prep before leaving for the day (6.00pm to 6.45pm for Third and Fourth Form, Tuesday to Friday) or Clinics (5.30pm to 6.30pm for Fifth and Sixth Form, Tuesday to Friday) if possible, unless other arrangements have been agreed with the Housemaster or Housemistress concerned. Lessons are Monday through to Saturday morning (finishing at 12.00).
Each House will have its own timetable for regular House meetings, for which day pupils are encouraged to stay.
