Extracurricular activities provide an opportunity to develop our pupils’ talents, interests, and passions.  They teach valuable practical skills, organisational skills as well as promote good time management and teamwork.  As a school we encourage all learners to participate in as many out of class opportunities as possible.  Many of our clubs and activities take place during lunchtimes or after school each week.  Activities are often structured to support and enrich the curriculum.  However, some opportunities focus purely on enjoyment and engagement.

Some of our weekly popular clubs and activities include
