Activities

A chance to Discover new Talents

Our students enjoy taking part in a broad range of educational, cultural and sporting activities through the school, but as boarders they also have access to a dedicated programme of extra-curricular activities. 

Boarders in Years 7, 8, 9 and 10 are expected to take part in at least two activities during the week and two activities at weekends, one on each day.

Boarders in Years 11-13 are encouraged to participate in regular activities and gain a healthy balance between academic work, the opportunities that are on offer and socialising.

…There Is a strong sense of Community within the Boarding HOuse…

There is a strong sense of community within the boarding house and boarders are placed in one of two houses, Windermere and Coniston. These houses enjoy a range of competitive activities throughout the year, bringing the boarders together to celebrate achievement and friendship.

We believe that regular participation in extra-curricular activities provides a chance for students to discover new talents, building character, increasing resilience and encouraging greater self-confidence. We also provide a range of fun social activities that young people would enjoy at home.

Recent activities have included:

  • Annual proms and regular boarding socials
  • Charity events
  • Creative workshops
  • Community projects
  • Cultural visits
  • Duke of Edinburgh Award
  • Go-Karting

  • Pony trekking
  • Problem solving
  • Public speaking
  • Sports tournaments
  • Shopping trips
  • Teambuilding
  • Ten Pin Bowling
  • Theatre/cinema trips
  • Volunteering
  • Young enterprise

We encourage students to take the time to practice their faith, and have good links with the local Parish Church, Heversham St Peter’s.

Please note: The cost for any paid for activities that students sign up for will be added to the end of term bill.
