We believe that clubs and activities taking place outside the classroom and after school hours are an important part of the life of the school. Not only do they enrich the education we provide, they help our young people to develop their own personal qualities and strengths and use their initiative.
Duke of Edinburgh Award
The school offers the Duke of Edinburgh Bronze Award for Year 10 students. Through a DofE programme young people have fun, make friends, improve their self-esteem and build confidence. They gain essential skills and attributes for work and life such as resilience, problem-solving, team-working, communication and drive, enhancing CVs and uni and job applications.
