Our Extra-curricular offer

We have over 70 extra-curricular clubs to choose from. Whether your child is interested in Tai Chi, dance or football – we have lots of things for them to try. Pupils are expected to take part in at least one. This way they will get to learn and develop new skills, build relationships and experience opportunities that they may not normally get to experience.
