Extra-Curricular Activities

Extra-curricular activities are a fundamental part of the curriculum offered across Academies because we recognise the importance of life outside the world of scholarship, providing a refreshing counterbalance to academic studies.  The school offers a wide selection of over 40 after-school activities to enhance the curriculum offered in our school; creative, musical, physical and academic. 

Importantly, in the range of activities offered in our academies, we value the approach characterised by the International Baccalaureate Programme in which extra-curricular provision is aligned to three areas of creativity, action and service (CAS). Students are encouraged to participate in a breadth of experiences, promoting an understanding of their own potential, skills and future career paths or interests.

All of our teachers commit to the programme as part of their contractual duties and, consequently, there is a diverse and engaging programme, sufficient to attract the attention and interest of all students. 

Our Extra-Curricular Activities are centered on the following learning outcomes:

  • Increasing awareness of strengths and areas for growth

  • Undertaking new challenges

  • Planning, initiating and leading activities

  • Working collaboratively with others

  • Showing perseverance and commitment in activities

  • Engaging with issues of global importance

  • Considering the ethical implications of actions

  • Developing new skills.


A number of extra-curricular activities are offered across Academies to support students’ academic achievement where they demonstrate a particular flair or interest in certain subjects.

Music School

Music education can play a vital role in your child’s development, as it helps to improve self-confidence, concentration, and memory, while also enhancing communication, language and reasoning skills. Studies have also shown how the enjoyment of learning an instrument can even increase your child’s IQ, and help them achieve higher grades in core subjects including English and mathematics.

Learning at Home

Learning does not just happen at school during school hours. We aim to establish an effective home-school partnership by which homework, research and private study extend from and beyond class work. Study at home enhances, consolidates and reinforces the learning at school
