Cultural Visits & Activities

Cross-curricular cultural visits and field trips, involvement in the local community, competitions with other schools, be it debating, public speaking, general knowledge, leadership, maths, music or poetry give each child opportunities to discover new skills and to develop interests outside the classroom.

Each term, pupils choose an activity in which they take part every Tuesday afternoon. The choice of activities is as diverse as it is extensive and is continually refreshed. Recent examples include chess, circus skills, community service, cooking, cross-country, current affairs, dance, debating, electronics, film making, golf, gymnastics, IT and coding, life-saving, mixed football, pottery, rugby 7s, swim squad, water polo, wellbeing, woodland games and yoga, as well as mainstream sports, music, drama, art and craft. Friday clubs are similar to those on Tuesday, but for children in ensembles and choirs, music takes priority.

The provision and range of extra-curricular activities are excellent and effectively complement and enhance the curriculum."
