We believe that participation in extra-curricular activities is an essential part of education, exposing students to new experiences and broadening their horizons. Our comprehensive weekly extra-curricular programme caters for all ages and interests. As well as a wide range of sporting activities, students can take part in creative arts, languages and humanities clubs. Some of our most popular clubs include the Harry Potter Club, KIVA club (where students raise money in the UK to invest in social development programmes in developing countries) and the Carnegie Reading Group.
In Key Stage 3, all students are expected to take part in at least one extra-curricular club per week with a view to this continuing in Key Stage 4. These activities are held at lunchtimes as well as after school. As well as weekly extra-curricular activities, students are encouraged to take part in a wide range of enrichment activities which include trips during the school day and at weekends as well as a number of international visits each year. We are determined that all young people, regardless of financial circumstances, should have access to such experiences and encourage families to apply to our Supporting Achievement Fund as required for assistance.
