Enrichment

We run a full programme of lunchtime and after school clubs from sporting and musical activities to STEM and scholarly studies. Although extra-curricular activities are optional, we strongly encourage all students to enrich their school day with an additional interest and we are always open to ideas about new clubs from students.

We also offer subject drop-in sessions for our Key Stage 4 and 5 students to further support them in their studies - the current timetable can be downloaded here. As they approach their external exams we additionally provide a comprehensive timetable of revision sessions.

Learning outside the classroom plays an important role in the education of well rounded students. Each year students have the opportunity to participate in a wide range of trips and visit. Locally students visit local attractions and heritage sites and proudly participate in community events representing their school. Beyond our local area students visit theatres, sporting venues, national events and internationally students have the opportunities to join language visits, sports tours, music and dance tours and cultural exchanges.
