Every day provides the opportunity to participate in one of over 50 clubs and societies held during lunchtime and after school, encouraging involvement and fostering a pupil’s talents and interests.
Each Club or Society is run under the guidance of a member of staff, but much of the responsibility is given to the pupils. The Duke of Edinburgh’s Award is a nationally and internationally renowned qualification which is supported by the vast majority of pupils. The award offers pupils a challenging opportunity to further themselves through practical, cultural and adventurous activity. Many gain their Bronze Award with a significant proportion achieving Silver and Gold.
