The close connection between good physical health and fitness and the highest levels of intellectual attainment are now well known. This is one of the reasons why we encourage a diverse and challenging sporting programme spanning rugby, soccer, cross-country, basketball, hockey, netball, athletics, swimming and fencing.
Our sports programme is designed to allow everyone to find the physical activity that will suit them best, providing opportunities for the stronger performers to exce and the weaker ones to develop their skills.
MUSIC AND DRAMA
We aim to give every pupil the opportunity to develop his or her powers of oral communication and dramatic and musical expression. Great confidence is gained through performing to an audience and pupils throughout the school are encouraged to take part in a variety of theatrical productions and concerts.
- some music scholarships
- concerts held during the year
- annual productions
- after-school drama club
"Rapid improvements are taking place in the
provision for music and in the standards being
achieved in this area".
After school clubs of many kinds are available to all pupils, Juniors and Seniors. School outings are regarded as vital components in the education we offer. The school trip takes full advantage of its proximity to central London with its galleries, exhibitions, theatres, museums and concert halls.
- frequent visits to London
- annual ski trip
- thriving chess club
- supervised homework club
"The participation of staff in after-school activities
is commendably high".
