Extra-Curricular Activities

We believe that academic success should go hand-in-hand with a rich
variety of extra-curricular activities. Wherever there is demand for a club or activity, we will always try to find a way to make it happen.


Extra-curricular activities will help foster a spirit of aspiration, resilience and joy in learning. We will encourage all students to participate in our extensive extra-curricular programme, including lunchtime and after school clubs, leadership opportunities, fundraising for charity, cultural and educational visits and residential trips at home and abroad.
