Enrichment and STEM
Our overall aim is to provide all students with a variety of opportunities to experience success in a sporting activity. Success may come as a result of personal achievement or through participation in a team activity, always remembering that success consists of feeling good about what you have achieved and does not need to be associated with first or best. T
eam games are an extremely important part of our school life and all students are encouraged to participate. Matches are played both on Saturday mornings and weekdays. Our teams are entered for local and regional competitions in rugby, hockey, netball, cross country, rounders, gymnastics, tennis, cricket, football, athletics, cheerleading.
We have an excellent reputation in all areas of sports and treasure our numerous trophies and accolades.
Students regularly have the opportunity to perform through music, dance or drama to a variety of audiences and we pride ourselves on the professionalism of our productions. Staff, students, parents and community members work closely together to put on shows of the highest quality. We also have an extensive range of instrumental tuition in all the main musical instruments.
The ensembles include choirs, orchestras, brass band, guitar group, steel band, woodwind ensembles, soul band, folk group, string and percussion groups.
CLUBS AND ACTIVITIES
We have an incredibly extensive range of other activities for young people to engage with which will complement their social, academic and cultural development. These opportunities enable youngsters to grow into confident individuals as well as developing a range of very important social skills. They vary from gardening groups or debating societies to computer programming or community volunteers.
