'A wealth of extra-curricular opportunity is provided, with sporting, creative and academic activities available so that there is something to capture the interest of every pupil.' ISI Report 2015
Participation in co-curricular activities plays an important part of school life and we strongly encourage all our girls to participate in one or more of the activities on offer to broaden their horizons and give them an opportunity to try something new.
The Duke of Edinburgh’s Award is offered from Year 9 at bronze level to gold in the Sixth Form. It is a very popular activity with most girls participating at least at bronze but many achieve their silver and gold award.
