Extra-Curricular

Our curriculum includes a wide and varied extra-curricular offering through the extensive number of clubs, sports teams and performances that our staff offer throughout the year.

All students are actively encouraged to participate in extra-curricular clubs after school as a way of extending their experiences, deepening their knowledge, fostering relationships, promoting good health and enhancing skills. It also broadens students’ interests, making them more rounded individuals.

Additionally, students are exposed to multiple enrichment activities which take place during the school day, including visits from speakers, Bronte lectures run by the English department, theatre productions and trips to enrich the taught curriculum.
