We believe that the curriculum should not be constrained to lesson time, and that all pupils should have enrichment opportunities to support or stretch their learning, to enhance their life experience and simply for leisure and enjoyment.
All students have access to extra-curricular trips and educational visits including foreign and British residentials, ski and sports trips, visits to enhance the curriculum, fieldwork and sports fixtures.
As well as sports performance, students also have the opportunity to perform in a range of dramatic and musical events, supported by a variety of performing arts clubs, from the more typical drama club, orchestra, strings, etc through to jazz band.
A range of clubs take place after school and during school lunchtimes across all subject areas including our Arts Award provision (we are a national best practice centre). There are also other special interest or targeted clubs such as Dr Who Club, Warhammer, Bees Knees, Engineering Club, Christian Group, French Penpals, Radio Club and a full set of homework support clubs. Our Magistrates Group regularly wins the regional finals and many of our teams and clubs have achieved rewards and recognition.
Full details are circulated to our students at the start of the year, through tutor bulletins, on the Extra-Curricular noticeboard and in our annual Activities Directory.
Please see typical lists of lunchtime clubs below - these are suspended temporarily during the current outbreak of Covid-19.
