Extracurricular Activities

There is always plenty to do in school! The following clubs are just a taste of what we offer. They run Monday to Friday in groups to suit all ages at lunchtimes and after school, and some (such as breakfast club) early in the morning before school. Times vary depending on the time of year and are displayed on our Extracurricular program which is in form rooms and on the website. 


The number of clubs which we offer as extracurricular activities remains first class and at lunch times in particular the school is a hive of activity with a wide range of clubs and societies for pupils to get involved in. The provision of clubs varies according to the particular school term and on a yearly basis according to changes in staffing. The list below gives a feel for the range of activities. Alongside the fantastic variety of PE Clubs there are also opportunities for pupils to catch up if experiencing problems in their studies as well as learn new skills or develop existing interests. On top of all the Music clubs offered are the specialist lessons. 

Most lunch times the Art block and textiles areas find lots of students engaged in activities whilst the Drama Studio seems to be bursting at the seams with the numbers attending. Old favourites like the Electric Car Club (CAUC car club ) continue to the well supported, whilst newer activities such as STEM Club and Let's Get Cooking have become popular. 

Breakfast Club is everyday in room F2 (7:45 - 8:20am) - Free of Charge
