Activities are completely free of charge for students and are in no way compulsory. We do however require students to fully commit as spaces may be limited for some activities and we want to be able to cater for all students who wish to participate.

Our aim is to provide an extra-curricular programme that complements our curriculum and fosters a love of education. Every member of staff will be running or supporting an activity to ensure we have an extensive range of activities available for students to opt for.

This is a chance to help build on what is learnt within the classroom as well as giving students the opportunity to try something new. This opportunity is inclusive to all students and there is something for every student to take part in, if they wish to do so.
