Extra Curricular Activities
All our students receive membership at the Oxford University Sport Centre as soon as they turn 16. The centre is close to the Hall of Residence and offers a 25m swimming pool, gym, grass football pitch, tennis and squash courts, bouldering wall, athletic track and more. Swimming lessons, fitness classes and personal training can be booked directly with the sports centre.
The college has an active football team who meet for weekly practice. The team takes part in the annual CIFE Football Tournament in April. The Student Council Sports Officer works closely with the College's Student Services Manager to arrange sporting activites and to encourage students to participate. In recent times activities have included a girls' volley ball club, zumba classes and horse riding.
Social activities are organised by the Student Council and the Student Services Manager and vary from year to year, depending on interest generated amongst the student body. Events include:
- Students' Christmas Party
- Valentine's Dinner Dance
- Summer BBQs
- Paintballing, go-carting and bowling
- A trip to Thorpe Amusement Park
- Raising money for a charity of the students' choice, for example through a bake sale
There are many cultural events offered all year round at the various University colleges. Oxford also has five theatres and three cinemas as well as the famous Ashmolean Museum, Bodleian Library, the Pitt Rivers Collection and famous Oxford landmarks within easy distance of the college. Students are given a tour of Oxford on arrival and are encouraged to take part in cultural activities.
