We have developed an extensive (and ever expanding) programme of co-curricular activities, which are available to all girls. These activities are designed to meet a wide range of tastes and to help all girls develop their interests in areas beyond the taught curriculum.
Activities during the school day are free at the point of use; these are mostly performing arts, sports clubs and those drawn from more direct links with the taught curriculum. Most of the early morning activities start at 8.30am and run through registration to end in time for the first lesson of the day at 9.10am. The lunch break is extended to give time for activities from 12.40pm to 1.50pm.
After school activities are more diverse both in the scope of the activity and the timings. Some of our visiting sports clubs don’t end until 9pm. There is a small, subsidised charge for some of the after-school activities. This charge is only levied where an external coach or tutor is employed to run the sessions.
Every year, teams of girls take part in the Ten Tors Challenge and are involved in The Duke of Edinburgh's Award.
It's really easy to join in an activity. At the beginning of each term, girls get the chance to talk to staff and sign up to a whole variety of Co-curricular activities.
From photography to fencing club, from science club to kickboxing – with over 80 activities to choose from there is something for everyone. What will you choose?
