What were boarding schools in 1940's England like and what did the boysgirls do on weekends for fun?

English boarding schools in the 1940's were considered to be very prestigious and therefore highly coveted. Parents who were able to afford boarding school preferred to send their kids to boarding school. They were known for having a much better education than any other schools. The boys and girls would play outside, listen to music on a communal record player, read, and play games. Most boarding schools allowed kids who were over 11-12 years old to visit town on Saturdays to spend their money, if they had any. Sometimes the boarding schools would offer a film show on the weekends. With the war going on during the 1940's, boys and girls did experience rations and had to do without some of the stuff they were used to at home, pre-war.
