At Culford Sixth Form, lessons finish at 12:05pm on Saturdays. This leaves the rest of the weekend free for sports and activities, and provides the needed fun and relaxation which busy Sixth Form boarders need.
The programme of activities is produced in consultation with the Heads of Houses and the House Councils, so that it reflects the interest and requirement of students year on year. It includes trips, such as visiting London, Cambridge, Norwich or visiting The Clothes Show at the NEC, and recent activities have included go karting, The Snow Dome and mountain biking. There really is something for everyone!

Most of these activities and trips take place on Sundays as Saturday afternoons are usually filled with sporting fixtures against other schools from Suffolk, Norfolk and Cambridgeshire.
The weekend is also an excellent time to chat and make friends with other boarders, or to get advice from their Housemaster or Housemistress, who are in residence over the weekends, or to spend some time working on A Level coursework, Prep or revision.
The Senior School Tuck Shop is organised and run by Sixth Form students to fund their annual charitable trip to Malawi. It is open from 4.15-5.45pm every weekday, except for Wednesdays and is located in Cornwallis Boarding House, at the heart of the boarding community. Rather than using cash, pupils are given a Tuck Shop card with £25.00 of credit loaded every term and pupils can purchase drinks, snacks and toiletries.
