We are proud of the wide range of different societies and clubs on offer which run before school, during lunchtime and after school.
Pupils are provided with the opportunity to participate in a variety of sports across the week at both lunchtime and after school. Sports offered across the year include football, netball, hockey, table tennis, volleyball, basketball, gymnastics, cheerleading, cricket and rounders.  Pupils are provided with the opportunity to compete in sports against other schools at both district and county events. Pupils who prefer to participate for fun are given the opportunity to participate recreationally in their favourite sport each week. Pupils are also encouraged to try a new sport, with our clubs being open to all pupils.

For music, students can learn an instrument through our instrumental lesson programme. This includes both 1-2-1 and small group teaching delivered by a highly skilled team of peripatetic music teachers.

Students can take part in a range of ensembles, from beginner to more advanced including woodwind and strings group, guitar ensemble and KS3 and KS4 choir.

For drama, the students also can take part in a range of drama and dance activities outside of curriculum lessons; this includes joining our Performing Arts Company, Drama Group and Dance Company. These opportunities are to further develop student understanding and appreciation of how drama and dance can influence people's lives and evoke change. 

For our talented artists, the art department offers a range of enrichment activities after school. This includes weekly workshops as part of after school provision. Throughout the year, a range of concerts, productions and exhibitions take place. This includes music concerts such as our annual carol concert, drama and dance showcases, whole school productions and our annual Key Stage 4 and sixth form art exhibitions. This allows students' work to be celebrated with members of their family, peers, and staff to showcase their hard work, effort and talent.
