Clubs and Activities

The Clubs and Activities Programme is extensive and is designed to meet as many of the interests and needs of the pupils as possible. During each term there are some changes to the programme but the choice remains above 120 clubs and activities on offer through the week. There is a balance of creative activities, music sessions, coaching in major games and a wide variety of sports that are not part of the curriculum Games Programme.

We encourage the pupils to take advantage of the huge variety of clubs and activities on offer. Activities are allocated via pupils group tutors taking into account other school commitments. We also have a significant number of quality external coaches who help deliver the programme.

Wednesday and Saturday Afternoon Activities

On Wednesday afternoons and Saturdays the vast majority of children are involved in matches or team training. For pupils who do not have a match there are a variety of activities which pupils can take part in. These take place from 1.30pm to 3.15pm.

Recently we have run a scheme which entails four different areas which the pupils should take part in. These being; outdoor adventurous activities, community and environmental activity, fitness and personal interest. Once a pupil has done four hours in each area a bronze award is achieved, silver at 15 hours and gold at 20 hours.

With negotiation with the games staff pupils may elect to pursue a regular activity on a Wednesday such as sailing, jet skiing, clay shooting and only make themselves available to sports team selection on a Saturday afternoon.

The majority of activities are free of charge, including Pottery, Art, Craft, Golf, Table Tennis. Sport; Badminton, Swimming, Squash, Football, Zumba. Some clubs do have an additional charge due to specialist staff, travel or equipment requirements including Jet Skiing, Go Karting, Sailing and Clay Shooting.
