Extra Curricular Activities

We believe that it is important to offer students more learning experiences than those in the classroom. We therefore offer a variety of activities at lunchtime, after school.

These include:

  • Supervised ICT work
  • Orienteering
  • Football
  • Rugby
  • Hockey
  • Cricket
  • Homework classes
  • Netball
  • Basketball
  • Duke of Edinburgh Award Scheme at Bronze and Silver levels
  • Athletics
  • Rounders
  • Extra Tuition
  • Trampoline
  • Dance
  • Talent Shows
  • Music Clubs
  • Youth Parliament
  • Language Clubs
  • Karaoke Competitions

We also offer all students the opportunity to enhance their learning and enjoyment of school life through a variety of trips both within the U.K and abroad as well as a Year 11 Prom Evening.
