Personal discovery

Alongside academic studies, a plethora of co-curricular activities allows our pupils to pursue their own interests and discover new ones.

With grounds extending to one hundred acres, there is ample space for activities. The gardens are imaginatively landscaped, while the dedicated ground staff take justifiable pride in the quality of the sports pitches. The outdoor facilities are complemented by a superbly-equipped sports hall, swimming pool, dance studio, gym and fitness suite.

Pupils follow a balanced programme of activities based on the CAS (creativity, action, service) element of the International Baccalaureate. While teams are coached to the highest standards those who simply wish to enjoy their sport are given every chance to develop.

After lessons a myriad of clubs and activities encourage creative expression and discovery, from cookery, rock climbing, pottery and printing to chess, poetry clubs, dance, theatre and drama. Choirs and ensembles, rock and jazz bands give regular performances and Vivartis, our renowned visual and performing arts programme, gives a framework to all these activities. Outward bound courses and Duke of Edinburgh trips offer further opportunities.
