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.

Of course, day children also take part in Activities and benefit hugely from this aspect of our boarding ethos.

The activities that are currently up for grabs can be found in the menu bar on the left.
