Extra Curricular, Trips and Activities
Lunchtime Activities, After School Clubs & Fixtures
We believe passionately in the importance of the individual. Every member of our community is unique; they are both loved and valued for their own sake, and encouraged to develop their talents to the full. We have a vast array of lunchtime, after school and enrichment activities available to all pupils and students.
We run a variety of Extended Learning opportunities throughout the year to add to the excitement of our curriculum, and to stimulate deep learning provided through extended projects, particularly in Sixth Form. The projects dovetail with our curriculum to ensure coherent and powerful learning experiences across all years. Furthermore, an extended learning week in June sees students in all year groups partake in a wide range of activities, many of which involve trips within the region and internationally.
There is an extensive range of trips to all parts of the globe. A team building experience is offered early in the academic year to all new year 7 students. In addition to the annual MFL trips to France and Spain, opportunities to go on residential vists to northern France or on a Ski trip to Austria are very popular and well subscribed. These compliment the extensive programme of subject specific field trips for examinations students at KS4 and A-level incorporating Biology and Geography field trips, Art Gallery visits, theatre productions and visits to Canterbury.
We currently host a Spanish exchange which offers opportunities to host students and pay a return visit to Spain.
As part of our Arts Status we run many international visits and music tours. Our Head Boy/Head Girl team have the opportunity of a once in a lifetime trip to Uganda to support the work of our charity KiSS and this is extended to our Sixth Form year group through the KiCA adventure and awareness trip in the summer holidays. The KiCA trip combines the excitement of safari with KiSS community projects.
