EXTRA CURRICULAR ACTIVITIES
Supporting the academic and pastoral work, we offer a diverse range of clubs and activities seven days a week. These enrich pupils’ development, helping them to learn, understand and pursue interests that lie beyond academic study.
Activities range from public speaking and debating to horse riding and rock climbing. Girls can join the swing band, master street dance, discover scuba diving, take up skiing, and much more. Less formal activities include socials with friends and other schools, ice-skating, water sports, ballroom dancing, cheerleading, theatre trips and, of course, shopping! Activities such as Young Enterprise and Duke of Edinburgh help the girls to develop confidence and a bold spirit.
“We have well organised, action packed days with plenty of time to relax and chat to your friends. Before coming here, I never dreamed that I would have so many friends!” – Sofia Cormack
The girls are encouraged to explore the world around them and they will have many opportunities to join organised visits which enrich the curriculum. In recent years, excursion opportunities have included a physics trips to CERN, the European Organisation for Nuclear Research; the geography trip to Iceland to study the volcanic landscape and its impact on people’s lives; art department visits to the Tate and London Galleries. Professional musicians, speakers from the Royal Society of Chemists and other leading professionals are among the number of expert visitors who visit us in school on a regular basis to help encourge the girls to be curious and innovative students and develop their experiences.
