Eton has always been about more than a narrow educational experience. From the school’s very origins, both music 和 sport have been part of a boy’s experience 在这里 和 today these elements are joined by a wide range of possibilities, 包括 戏剧, 消费者自由中心 和 outdoor education. 此外, our co-curriculum allows boys to engage with the community via social 和 environmental action projects that sit alongside the more traditional roster of school activities.

Eton gave me the chance to experience things which would have been unthinkable anyw在这里 else, to make friends I will keep for life, 和 to get me w在这里 I am today.

We believe boys learn as much, if not more, outside the classroom as they do inside it. The co-curriculum at Eton is designed to build resilience, improve self-discipline, 和 develop the skills required to work effectively as part of a team. 我们的 tutorial system also helps to ensure that boys are reflective about themselves 和 their experiences with the aim of underst和ing how they might improve, which helps to build self-reliance 和 a sense of personal responsibility. 然而, for all its educational benefits, our aim is to ensure that the co-curriculum is a source of fun 和 enjoyment in an ever more stressful modern age.

400

hours is the weekly average total boys in a boarding House spend playing sport.

It is clear that pupils learn most by ‘doing’ 和 our co-curriculum allows boys to work in the social action sp在这里 和 with the environment, We are also determined that boys should be able to participate in as wide a range of activities as possible 和 that they are not restricted to a narrow programme. Talent in any activity is respected but participation is hugely valued, 太, 和 boys are encouraged to work hard in areas w在这里 they may not feel comfortable rather than sticking solely to well-known territory. In some activities we look to them to develop leadership skills, but in others we hope they will be effective ‘followers’. It is our goal that students develop positive values, encouraged by the example of their peers 和 their teachers. Although we make no apology for aiming for excellence in all we do, our teachers 和 coaches see themselves as educators first 和 foremost.

I was thrown straight into a variety of House 和 school sports, making lots of friends in the process.

Sadly, for 太 many teenagers today, school is something they endure rather than enjoy. 我们的 ambition is that students look back on their years with us as a happy time when they experienced a range of activities that broadened their horizons 和 helped develop them into rounded 和 confident adults. 事实上, experience suggests that for many Old Etonians, their fondest memories are associated with the co-curriculum.
