"An excellent range of activities and extra-curricular clubs promote the pupils' high levels of personal development"
- ISI Inspection Report 2015
Utilising the school’s extensive grounds and specialist facilities, the skills and interests of staff as well as the expertise of external instructors, we aim to provide a diverse and exciting programme of activities for every child in Form 1–6 (Year 3–8).
The programme allows our children to learn new and develop existing skills as well as socialise with children in other year groups.
It also allows our children to take responsibility for their own decisions as they make informed choices about which activities they wish to do, each term. Children are involved with developing the breadth and style of activities on offer, discussing the programme of activities during school council meetings.
From .22 rifle shooting in our underground range to cooking and baking sweet and savoury treats in our fully equipped kitchen, there really is something to inspire and interest every child.
All children attend a range of recreational, creative, academic and sporting activities throughout the week, in an activities slot which forms part of every child’s normal school day.
Children in Form 1-2 (Years 3-4) have an activity slot from 4.30pm - 5.00pm and children in Form 3-6 (Years 5-8) have an activity slot from 4.40pm - 5.20pm.
