Clubs and Activities
‘The vast range of thriving extra-curricular activities, including high quality opportunities in sport, music, drama, art and travel is a huge strength of the academy’ Ofsted 2014
We are proud to be able to provide, at no cost to the students, a huge range of extra-curricular activities and clubs throughout the school year. These take place either during the lunch break or after school on Monday, Tuesday and Thursdays when the late buses run.
Some of the activities are for individual year groups while others are suitable for several year groups. The various sporting activities depend on the season, but all details can be found in the termly Clubs & Activities document.
The PE & Sports Department offers an extensive extra-curricular programme of activities and also leadership training.
There are over 300 inter-school fixtures during the course of any one school year. These can be at District, County and National Level.
Traditional team sports are offered with increasing opportunity for all. To meet the demand for extra opportunity and increased challenge for our students we often complete against local private schools.
Students are offered opportunities to compete in individual sports such as athletics, badminton, cross country and swimming. Due to our commitment to extra-curricular sport and cricket we are one of the few state schools to appear regularly in the prestigious ‘Cricketer Top 100 Schools’.

As well as playing rugby, a regular trip to Twickenham is also arranged to enable the students to share in the skill, excitement and spectacle of a professional game and those interested in tennis compete in the ‘Road to Wimbledon’ competition.
