There are three types of weekend at the Dragon. Most weekends are Open Weekends meaning pupils can go home after their Saturday commitments and return on Sunday evening or Monday morning. The first and last weekends of the Winter and Summer terms are In School Weekend meaning pupils remain at school for the whole weekend. The first weekend in the Easter term is also an in school weekend. These are important occasions for fostering the boarding community spirit with special activities arranged for the pupils. We also have Exeat Weekends at the quarter and three-quarter term mark when all pupils go home, or to guardians, for the weekend from Friday lunchtime through to the Sunday evening. There has long been a tradition of plenty of boarders remaining in school over weekends and the activities programme at this time is full and vibrant.
