The school actively encourages pupils to join in extra-curricular activities. It is an
important element of a broad education, and particularly in the early years, for
pupils to participate in at least one activity. This can do a great deal to help the
pupil identify with the school, make new friends and gain in personal confidence.
Activities currently on offer include:
Sporting: Badminton, jogging, athletics, football (boys and girls), crosscountry,
hockey, netball, table-tennis, rugby and volleyball.
Musical: Band, choir, discos and dances, and musical instruction.
Other: Computer club, Crime Prevention, Debating Society, Chess,
Drama, Scripture Union, and Theatre Outings.
These activities are organised on a voluntary basis by parents and members of
staff who have always given generously of their time. The school, and the pupils
who benefit from such goodwill, are grateful to them.
In addition to the above, other out of school visits related to the curriculum take
place throughout the year and there are opportunities for groups to travel abroad.
Written parental approval is always sought for visits out of school; all such visits
are organised in accordance with Council guidelines for out-of-school visits.
