Extracurricular activities - Junior School

Our girls’ learning continues beyond their classrooms, with our lively and diverse programme of morning and lunchtime clubs, sports and after-school activities.

From netball to chess and football to debating, there’s something for everyone to love. Our most recent clubs have included:

  • Art & Craft
  • Cricket
  • Debating
  • Football
  • Hockey
  • ICT
  • Knitting
  • Maths in Motion
  • Netball
  • Rounders
  • Sewing

Clubs are run by our talented teachers but we also have specialist coaches from outside of school. These incur a small charge and offer a wide range of activities including:

  • Ballet
  • Chess
  • Drama
  • Fencing
  • Gymnastics
  • Judo
  • Tennis

 

 


Music and Outdoor Learning

Our Music provision is outstanding and girls can learn a whole range of instruments in class or from peripatetic teachers, or improve on instruments they already know how to play. In addition, we also run several exciting clubs, some of which also incur a cost:

  • Choir
  • Musical Theatre
  • Orchestra
  • Swing Band
  • Steel Pans
  • Ukulele Orchestra

 

 

Our girls love to perform and get many opportunities to take part in productions and concerts at school and other venues, showcasing their incredible musical talent and progress.

Outdoor Learning

The girls are encouraged to embrace the great outdoors. Whether as part of the curriculum or our enrichment programmes, girls of all ages take part in a variety of activities, including den building, bushcraft and scaling the heights of the climbing wall.

Taking part in outdoor activities helps build character, stamina and resilience, while promoting leadership and teamwork skills. It’s also a lot of fun!

So whatever the weather, you’ll find girls from EYFS through to Year 6 kitted out accordingly, enjoying anything and everything that the great outdoors has to offer, under safe and supervised conditions.

I like the outdoor learning experiences. Especially the fire pit as we get to toast marshmallows! – Year 6 girl

 

Our House system first begins in Reception and continues through to the Sixth Form. It is a big part of our community as it promotes a sense of belonging and encourages our girls to support each other and make friends in different age groups. It provides them with positive role models and leadership opportunities where they take responsibility for themselves and others.

We believe it’s important for our girls to understand the community outside the privileged world of the school. Charity work also helps teach our girls respect for others and raises awareness of their role in the wider community.
