CO-CURRICULAR

 

Balancing Academic Work with Interests

Great importance is placed on balancing academic work with interests and achievements outside the classroom and every pupil is encouraged to become fully involved in school life, to challenge themselves and to try something new. This involvement helps to produce confident, interesting, well-rounded individuals who will contribute to society in life beyond school.
 

Music, art, design and drama form an important part of the core curriculum in Years 7 to 9 and through a number of games sessions per week and class-based PE lessons, children gain confidence, build physical fitness and benefit from healthy competition. All Year 9 and 10 pupils take part in the Duke of Edinburgh's Award Scheme and Combined Cadet Force and many continue through until the end of the Sixth Form.

In addition, pupils are encouraged to take part in the co-curricular opportunities after school. As well as music lessons and working toward drama qualifications, there is a wide range of organised activities and societies each day between 16:00 and 18:00.
