 Extra Curricular Activities

After school activities provide enriching opportunities to learn something new, extend particular skills beyond the levels gained through the normal school curriculum, or to make new friends with similar interests.
Activities are held each day after school each day and all students will have an opportunity to spend some time after school engaged in a club, society or activity designed to broaden their experience and improve their knowledge.

Students will have opportunities to participate in activities that may be closely related to the subjects they study during the day, for example, a sporting club such as tennis, badminton, netball or creative clubs such as art, knitting, drama, cross stitch, chess, public speaking or computers, or may open up a totally new experience as in the Duke of Edinburgh International Award scheme or the DES Young Adventurers.

On occasions, teachers will organise visits to a place of interest as a means of widening students’ knowledge and experience.

Times of activities.
Year 2 clubs begin each day at 12.30 PM. and end at 1.10 PM. Most Key Stage 2, 3 and 4 clubs begin straight after their school day and end at 2.45 PM. Other clubs are offered with a later start and finish. Details are given when clubs are advertised.

Choosing Activities
Students in Year 2 and Key Stage 2 can choose from a variety of activities using the booklet which is sent out each term. The Activities Coordinator does the utmost to make sure students are given preferred choices and this is on a first come first served basis.
Key Stage 3, 4 and 5 students make club choices during the first week of term with the members of staff running the activities.

Students are expected to take at least 3 after school activities a week.

If you have an enquiry about after school activities, contact the Head of Key Stage who will put you in touch with the Activities Coordinator.
