Extra Curricular & Enrichment
We encourage all of our students to play a part in the extra-curricular life of the school. Engaging in such opportunities allows students to develop various important skills, and helps them to feel a greater sense of belonging to the school community.
In school, we offer a range of clubs, societies and activities to all year groups, most of which meet during lunchtimes. There are many musical and sporting groups for students to join, as well as a range of subject-led clubs - from science, maths and languages to technology and art.
Students can take also part in ‘mindfulness’ activities, Fairtrade and Amnesty International events, as well as catch up clubs and after school homework clubs. Our programme is updated each term.
Trips & Visits
Students are given the opportunity to participate in many different visits each year. These are mainly organised by departments and range from numerous local trips and visits, which enhance the curriculum, to up to fifteen foreign visits each year to Europe, America and China.
Examples of recent trips include language visits to France, Germany, Spain and Italy, science visits to CERN and NASA, a geography expedition to Iceland and Religious Studies and History visits to Auschwitz and the First World War battlefields.
Expeditions to China take place on an annual or biennial basis, working with children in Inner Mongolia, as well as visiting Hong Kong and Beijing.
