"We believe that being part of a community matters, it involves reaching out to volunteer, raising funds for causes we care about, and sharing our spaces to build meaningful relationships.

130+ Activities on Offer at 2022 Co-Curricular Fair

There was a buzz of anticipation around the Main Hall on Monday lunchtime for the Co-Curricular Fair. The Sixth Form Subject Reps who run the clubs were busy encouraging students to not only to sign up for clubs they are passionate about but to try something new – who knows where it might lead?  

With over 40 stalls offering over 130 activities taking place before, after school and at lunchtime, students were definitely spoiled for choice!

There are over 60 Weekly Special Interest Clubs, with over half open to Year 7. New clubs for this year are Art History Debating, Chinese Bridge Speaking, Between the Lines, Memento Mori, Myths & Legends, Pond Club, Problem Solving Club, HIGSNFY: Science Journal Club and Spanish – I Sólo Bailar!

For budding engineers there are two clubs – the Glider Project and the Greenpower Challenge. Debating welcomes brand new and experienced debaters alike with Debating Socs for Year 7 and Year 8, as well a Beginners Debating Club & Intermediate/Experienced Debating Club. Our History Reps had their subject covered with a History Masterclass (Years 10-13), History & Film Lecture Club and the ever popular Horrible Histories (Years 7-9).
