RHS Ran 168 Co-curricular Activities This Term

At Royal Hospital School we place great importance on academic achievement but what goes on outside the classroom is equally as important. Our co-curricular activities give our pupils a chance to try new things, pursue their passions and develop as an individual. We find that our pupils gain confidence, new friends and a broader outlook by participating in a wide range of activities.

The pandemic has been hugely challenging for schools and running activities has been impacted by government restrictions including year group bubbles and social distancing. Yet, undaunted the resilience of our staff and our Assistant head of Co-curricular Brian Martineau have come to the fore and they've managed to run 168 co-curricular activities safely for our pupils this term.

In non-Covid times the number of activities we make available for our pupils is more like 200, so the majority have still gone ahead much to the delight of our pupils.

We encourage pupils to take part in at least 2activities a week and our tutors at the school support pupils in making their choices and encouraging them to try something new.

It's not all sport! We have everything from Mandarin and knitting to photography and eco-committee.
