Extra Curricular Activities

The Physical Education department run a number of after school clubs each term to extend the learning of our students beyond the Physical Education Sessions. We run several different sports and activities in our Gymnasiums, Swimming Pool and Astroturf Pitches for all the different year groups. Sessions are usually once a week training and additionally games, matches and fixtures are played throughout the year. These extra sessions provide an additional chance for children to fine tune their skills whilst also getting time to really enjoy different sports in a fun & safe environment with their friends with one of our professionally trained team. Extra- curricular activities are essential since they tend to engage more and more pupils with fun and enjoyable activities, they introduce them to new friends, and they are important for college applications. We offer a variety of after school activities such as basketball, football, badminton, volleyball, athletics, dodgeball, netball, swimming, gymnastics, cricket and rounders.
