Extra-curricular

 
 
 

A wide range of extra-curricular clubs and societies meet during lunchtimes or after school to enable pupils to develop friendships and skills beyond the classroom. These societies also allow pupils to mix with friends and colleagues from other year groups and provide them with the skills and experiences that will enable them to be confident and positive contributors to society. The friendships established during such activities can be long-lasting and testify to the effectiveness of an extra-curricular programme that is led by a committed staff with the aim of providing as broad an education as possible.
