Beyond the curriculum
Our rich and varied extra-curricular programme is a resounding strength of the school.
We place huge value on the impact extra-curricular activities can have in terms of developing our students both academically and pastorally. As a result, we wholeheartedly believe that student learning should not be limited to the classroom.
Over 50 clubs run each week, with diverse experiences on offer, as evidenced by our fully inclusive range of activities – there really is something for everyone!
Students can learn how to sign, attend Retro Gaming club, or the VEX Robotics club (which competes at a national level) or pursue the Duke of Edinburgh Award at KS4 and 5.
Our sports clubs benefit from outstanding facilities including a swimming pool, gym, sports hall and extensive fields. Again, the wide range of activities on offer is second to none and includes rugby, football, netball, tennis, swimming, trampolining, hockey and rounders.
The exceptional opportunities are Music Department provide have been recognised by the Royal College of Music. The school’s ‘Backstage Club’ consistently provides the lighting, sound and music for over 20 events each year, including the Minster Christmas Service where over 1000 members of the school community gather.
Additionally, students also get the opportunity to take part in trips and visits, both within the UK and beyond - further evidence of our commitment to promoting and fostering spiritual, moral, social and cultural awareness to ensure that the students in our care have a varied understanding and appreciation of a diverse range of beliefs and opinions that enables them to make wise and considerate choices in the future.
