ouis takes us into his
classroom, across to the
bustling Astroturf by the
School Fields, and down to the
banks of the River Cherwell. At

back in his boarding house for a
well deserved rest.
The School’s timetable runs on a ‘Blue’
and ‘Gold’ alternating week structure
consisting of five lessons, plus Activities and
after school Clubs. Each lesson is an hour
long, allowing Louis time to get stuck into
some of his favourite subjects; particularly
Science and Maths. Louis explains his love
of Maths stems from a young age, when his
father use to teach him while he was still

2014, and now boards in ourMiddle School
Boarding House, with Houseparents
Kingsley and Jessica Went, along with their
two children and 13 other boys.
08:15-9.30: Lesson 1 - Louis is with his tutor group during
Form Time. They discuss the lessons they love most and
least. The group discussion helps Louis understand why
it is important to put his best effort in to lessons, and
how to maximise enjoyment of his learning.
09.30: Lesson 2 – Louis and his classmates get creative and learn to plan in D&T. He
sketches out his design for a marble slide.
11.00: Lesson 3 – We join Louis in his Science lesson. He learns about
the value of good nutrition and how vitamins play a part in his diet.
12:00 - 13:00: Lunchtime – Joining his friends and a member of staff, Louis enjoys a
balanced, healthy meal to see him through his busy afternoon. He waits for his friends
to finish eating before he goes out to play an energising game of football.
My favourite subjects are
Maths and Science. I want to
be a surgeon when I am a adult.
