St Paul’s School / Daily Life

2019 is the 100th year that Paulines have been enjoying Summer and Easter holidays, or ‘house parties’. And hundreds of Old Paulines look back on these holidays as among the most treasured memories of their time at St Paul’s.

The house party is an extension of the weekly SPSCU and aims to build a community where the boys can learn about the Christian faith in a friendly, all-inclusive and pressure-free environment. This is run alongside an exciting program of indoor and outdoor games and pursuits.

During these last 100 years, the house parties provide a unique opportunity for boys to get to know their peers, make friends across every year group and start at St Paul’s knowing many more others from the School Community. The house parties are led by a number of Old Paulines and overseen by the School Chaplain and are supported by SPS staff.

The 2019 Summer House Party will run from Monday 5 August to Thursday 15 August and will be held at Worth School, Sussex. The cost of the house party is £450. Once you have booked your place a confirmation email will then be sent to you and you should then make a payment using the BACS details.

The School tries to support pupils who benefit from bursarial support in attending school trips. Parents whose sons benefit from bursarial support should contact the Finance Department to discuss what assistance might be available, quoting SPSCU Summer House Party in all correspondence.
