Extra-curricular activities are an important feature of our school and we have a long tradition of offering high quality opportunities and activities outside the usual curriculum. We believe that these activities are an important and exciting feature of school life and contribute enormously to our pupils’ social and academic development, giving pupils confidence to tackle those parts of the curriculum they may find more difficult. There is an extensive menu of extra-curricular activities on offer including music, design and sporting provision.
The sporting activities are varied and wide-ranging. All pupils are encouraged to participate; many pupils enjoy the competitive aspects of the team and individual inter-school events as well as the non-competitive sporting activities on offer. The school has achieved great success at local, regional and national level. Updates on the sporting events are included on the website.
The highly successful music department offers a full range of peripatetic instrumental lessons, as well as choirs, orchestra and a band. Concerts and performances throughout the year give pupils the opportunity to showcase their achievements as well as the opportunity for parents to enjoy the achievements of the pupils.
