Extra Curricular

Outdoor and adventure activities form part of the extra curricular programme and provide variety to traditional sports. The programme changes every term and some of the most popular activities include: dancing, chess, origami, cookery and tae kwondo. We endeavour to give the children the opportunity to try as many activities as possible. Please see the Junior School page for more details.

Participation in a variety of activities is encouraged, from an early age. Children are introduced to a wide range of sports including canoeing, surfing and skiing and have the opportunity to play in teams where a spirit of sportsmanship and courtesy is fostered. Some of the activities on offer are: An annual surf trip to Cornwall for years 10 and 11, a biannual skiing trip for seniors, an annual activity week in June open to all Year 5 and 6 Juniors and an annual camping and walking expedition in Dartmoor National Park.

Music plays a big part in the life of the school, where children learn to play many instruments supported by peripatetic teachers, or they can join the choir. In drama all the children are included in at least one production a year.

In addition to this the dedicated staff provide an interesting and varied programme of clubs for both junior and senior pupils.
