After School Activities

We have a wide range of extra-curricular clubs running before school, at lunch and after school. These are widely attended by students from all year groups and are a great way for Year 7 students to meet new people and try new things. Our Learning Support department also runs a Breakfast Club before school and a Homework Club at lunchtimes.

The list of clubs is continually expanding and can be found on the extra-curricular notice boards around school as well as on the school website. TV screens dotted around the site are also used to publicise new clubs and events as well as other relevant information for the students. At the start of the year our Bell’s Gone, What’s On? fair also allows students to get a flavour of all the different opportunities on offer.
