Clubs

 
After a busy school day the school does not stop. There are after school clubs available to all girls on Monday to Thursday.  These vary from term to term and will include squad practices for different sports, choir, chess, different arts and craft clubs, dance in different forms, creative ICT and many more.  All are great fun and allow the girls to explore new skills, develop their own particular interests and get to know girls in other year groups better.  Most clubs are run by our own staff and are free but a few incur a charge to pay for materials or for outside instructors.

We have also introduced a creative curriculum lesson on a Wednesday afternoon for the Upper School in which the girls in two year groups are mixed and rotate around six different topics.  In this way all girls will experience areas such as Mythology, Debating, Tapestry, The Environment, Art Appreciation, Shakespeare and Logic Puzzles.   We know that this will broaden the girls’ education, enable them to embrace extended projects and develop skills they did not know they had.
