In addition to these activities, we are committed to a comprehensive programme of sporting competitions. Of all the schools in the local area, we offer students the widest range of sport competitions to be part of. Whilst participation, and providing students with a breadth of opportunities is our priority, we are proud of the significant success that our sporting teams achieve and are delighted to share these with parents and carers via our social media and fortnightly newsletter.
Across the year, students may also participate in events such as:
- United Kingdom Mathematics Trust (UKMT) Events (all year groups)
- Crest Award (Science)
- Music Concerts (three time per year)
- College Dance Show
- Team Building Event (Year 7)
- Dragon's Den (Year 7)
- Take Your Child to Work Day (Year 8)
- Careers Fair (Year 9 - Year 13)
Enriching the curriculum with educational visits plays a key role in broadening the horizons of our students and providing memorable moments of school that students remember for years to come. Each year we consider the range of opportunities that we can offer with the curriculum and cost of living considerations in mind. For the academic year 2022-2023, amongst the experiences that we will be offering are:
Year 7: Black Country Museum, Woburn Safari Park
Year 8: Coasts Study, Theatre Trip
Year 9: UK Sports Tour, University Visit
Year 10: Geography Field Trip (compulsory curriculum entitlement), Theatre Trip, Wimbledon
Year 11 and Sixth Form: Students will undertake compulsory curriculum activities, such as field trips. They will also be offered workshops and lectures as appropriate to the courses that they are studying subject to relevance and availability.
Sixth Form students will be offered a range of additional activities as part of their Enrichment afternoon.
We are also currently exploring a Ski Trip for February 2025, which we will be delighted to re-instate following the pandemic.
Watch this space: coming soon is the launch of our Duke of Edinburgh Award Scheme!
