Beyond The Classroom

Clubs and activities play a key role in school life


The School is proud of the depth of its clubs and activities programme. This provides a vital complement to the academic prospectus and allows girls to take risks, develop life-long skills and to immerse themselves in a stimulating and invigorating range of activities, pastimes and hobbies. Each enriches the formal education provided by the School.

This programme includes major concerts, theatrical productions, recitals, musical competitions in addition to ambitious performances abroad, most recently at the Vatican, Rome where the school choir sang Mass.

The School supports 50 different clubs and activities giving the girls exceptional choice and a wealth of opportunities. These include activities that raise social awareness. This has included, for example, experiencing the aftermath of global catastrophes such as the Nepal earthquake and directly supporting the work of NGOs.

Social awareness activities for girls across all age groups also include looking at the importance of enterprise and developing an understanding of ethical and fair trade business practices.

Participation in competitive sport, building on the expertise of the School’s excellent sports coaches, is also a particularly key element of the clubs and activities programme.
