We believe that extra- curricular activities are central to the all-round development of our pupils, and we aim to provide as many opportunities as possible for pupils to experience a wide range of activities which will enrich their lives in and out of school. Our activities programme shows a commitment by the staff and pupils who lead and take part in this crucial aspect of school life.
On Friday afternoons, classroom activity ends and activities for all begin.
Year 7 and 8 pupils participate in PE lessons.
In Year 9 nearly all pupils join the CCF or the Duke of Edinburgh’s Award.
Years 10 and above get to choose from a number of activities devised to aid the development of useful skills like leadership, organisation and communication.
