Social life

At Welbeck we believe it is important for teenagers to be able to relax in the homely environment of their boarding houses, so each house common room is equipped with a range of comfortable seating on which the students can relax and watch TV, listen to music or even play table tennis or pool. Some prefer to socialise around the tables in their house kitchenette facilities where they can make hot drinks, toast or a microwave meal.

On weekends and some weekday evenings students can take full advantage of the Quorum Club where a licensed bar serves alcohol (within limitations) to those who are over the age of 18, and hot snacks can be enjoyed in front of the large screen TV's or films which are projected onto a big screen. The Quorum Club also offers a selection of games including Air Hockey, Pool, Table Football, Playstation 3's and a Nintendo Wii.

The students are particularly adept at organising their own social events for their own houses which can range from informal pizza evenings, to formal mess dinners or house nights out to a local restaurant or theatrical production. The Quorum Club also plays host to whole college social events on a termly basis, such as themed party nights with discos or rock bands, talent competitions and casino nights. These provide a welcome opportunity for the students to let off steam at the end of a busy week.
