Co-curricular Activities

The Sixth Formers enjoy a wide range of extra-curricular activities including Ten Tors, Duke of Edinburgh's Award scheme and an extensive range of Sixth Form specific trips and expeditions.

Our dynamic Outdoor Education Department runs climbing, canoeing, mountain biking, caving and sailing trips and individual departments run a wide variety of educational trips to augment the classroom experiences.

Sixth Formers have the option to join the CCF, in the Army, Navy and Air Force sections which offer opportunities for pupils to develop leadership skills, self-reliance and to learn team-building and responsibility in a challenging environment. All have hands-on practical experience in sections, including flying helicopters, shooting ranges, extensive boating and expeditions.

There is a vibrant Music Department, with a huge range of bands, orchestras, choirs and ensembles, including the superb Chapel Choir, offering many opportunities to perform and develop. There are also extensive Art, Design and Drama facilities, clubs and societies. A range of academically enriching activities such as a Debating Society, Raban Society, Coleridge Society and subject tutorials enhance the overall experience.

A pioneering Sports Performance and Wellbeing Department delivers a whole new approach to fitness and sport. In addition to sport coaching for all pupils, a new wellbeing element educates our young people on important lifestyle features such as diet, fitness and body image. Our talented Athlete Programme focuses on our performance athletes and a tailored fitness and skills training package is put together for each individual.
