Belhaven Hill School

A Full Boarding & Day School for Boys and Girls aged 7-13 years

Activities

Be Challenged

Be Challenged

Even for a young child, life is composed of challenges. At Belhaven our children come to understand that nothing is achieved without hard work and a willingness to meet difficulties head on.

‘Have a go’ is often heard here and, with support and encouragement, our boys and girls learn that the key to success lies within themselves. From small beginnings: the first time on stage, the music recital, breaking into a team… a certain determination is instilled so that the Belhaven child will not shirk a challenge, but tackle it level-headedly and with the expectation of success.

Running a full programme of fun, challenging activities at Belhaven is an integral part of providing an all-round education and being a boarding school.

At 5 pm on Mondays, Tuesdays and Thursdays, a range of activities is on offer for our boys and girls. This Activities' period is always very popular. We reckon the choice is pretty wide-ranging, and staff are always concocting new ideas.
