Throughout the course of a year, we will offer around 50 fun and interesting extra-curricular activities to our pupils.
This complements the academic curriculum and encourages pupils to engage in a diverse range of classes. Whilst encouraging children to continue with activities they are already successful at and enjoy, we believe it is just as important for them to try something new, allowing them to gain new experience and a breadth of skills and interests.
The majority of our activities take place after school (a few are held during lunchtimes) allowing full use of the school facilities and the varied expertise of our staff, as well as out-of-school activity leaders. For a few activities, pupils will use nearby facilities, such as the local Golf Club.
