Lime group is for the youngest students at Bowden House School. We currently have 8 students aged between 11 and 13. The group as a whole are active and enthusiastic. Together. they do some fantastic activities and love to go either swimming, Laser Quest, to the park, run around the forest and much more. There is also the option to just relax and unwind after the school day in the common room with games consoles, movie evenings or arts and crafts/ group games.
We also do seasonal activities. In the Summer we make use of the grounds playing run outs, sports and will enjoy barbeque evenings either at school or in the local woods. At Christmas we go ice skating, to the Pantomime and we all have a Christmas meal out together.
Rooms are purpose built and spacious with many being ensuite. The common room is comfortable and homely and the boys will spend their evenings relaxing on the couches, engaging with each other and watching TV or a film. At bedtimes they are given an option of a story, TV /DVD player, an MP3 player or even some time to talk about their day with a chosen staff member before settling down for the night.
In Lime, we have a privilege scheme in place so the students can earn rewards for their brilliant attitude and participation in evening activities. Rewards such as extra DVD time before bed or a delicious hot chocolate could be gifted each fortnight. On the alternative week, a privilege breakfast would be on offer for the 3 students with the highest points over the past two weeks.
On Fridays the boys return home hopefully having had a fulfilling and stimulating week at Bowden House School.
