Pupils have the opportunity to take part in one of our 40 extra-curricular clubs, whether that be drama, lacrosse, cookery or horse-riding. We encourage all pupils to take part in at least one club every week. They are hugely beneficial as they allow pupils to take time from their studies, engage with a different group of friends and take time to relax and have fun.
