Junior School Extra Curricular
Our extensive range of extra-curricular clubs provide something for everyone. Whether it is performing, creating, competing or simply playing, at this school there is never a dull moment!
Most of the clubs and activities we run are included in the fees and simply become part of the school day, and with a culture of ‘having a go’, all of them are very well attended.
No matter which activity your daughter chooses, you can relax knowing she is having fun, in a supportive environment learning from highly trained professionals.
The classroom outside
We believe strongly in the value of outdoor education for your daughter, which is why we take all girls out of the classroom as part of an extensive outdoor curricular programme. This gives them the chance to take risks, develop leadership skills, work in teams and become robust learners. Aside from being immensely enjoyable it also leads to positive outcomes back in the classroom.
In Year 3 and 4, the girls spend time with Mendip Outdoor Pursuits caving, climbing, canoeing and completing assault courses.
In Year 5 and 6, the girls head to Skern Lodge in North Devon for a week of adventure. They experience orienteering, abseiling, climbing, raft racing, surfing, and overnight bivouacking at Hartland Point.
These experiences are often the highlight of the girls’ year, and provide great memories, talking points and valuable lessons that cannot be taught any other way.
Encouraging personal expression
Our extensive art, music and drama programmes enrich aesthetic and creative development. Music is an important part of life here, and we offer one to one music lessons, which most girls take advantage of. We know they love to perform and give them every chance to do so – be it as part of the school choir, or orchestra or in an informal recital for friends and family. Everyone takes part in Junior school productions and many girls also opt for private speech and drama lessons.
