Clubs and Societies

Outside of the classroom, students are encouraged to get involved in a wide range of co-curricular activities, clubs and societies. Most of the opportunities are run by staff members, with a few organised and run by the students themselves.

Students generally have around 50 different clubs and societies to choose from, providing the perfect springboard from which to form new friendships, develop new interests and hone existing skills. If students would like to suggest or run their own club, this to can be arranged.

We recommend that students engage with three clubs or societies per term, allowing them to immerse themselves in the school community and compliment their academic work.

As students settle into the school, the range of opportunities increases as they move through the school.  By the end of Sixth Form, young people leave us for higher education full of confidence and experience, excited and prepared to make the most of life’s opportunities.

Below is an example of the sorts of clubs our students are able to join each term.
