Activities

A vital part of student life and learning, our multifaceted Activities programme provides students with opportunities to explore new interests, develop their strengths and pursue their passions.

They can do this through existing activities, or by finding students and staff who will join them in starting a new one as they make like-minded friends and interact with students from other grades and parts of the school.

Open to all students, the programme is divided into Arts and Performance, Create and Innovate, Home Languages Programme, Learn and Lead, Mind Matters, Representative Sports, and Wellness for Life. Founded on the notion of breadth of opportunity, our intentionally diverse programme provides students with opportunities to develop and to enjoy success beyond the classroom.

Activities invigorate the life of the College by bringing students together for creative, athletic, leadership and other endeavours. They are a vital part of student life and learning.

Activities in action

Activities programme 

The Activities programme encourages self-discovery and empowers students to take appropriate risks while exploring their capabilities. They also build leadership and social skills and an understanding of group dynamics. Most importantly, they experience both success and failure and learn the value of commitment.

Students sign up for each of the four Activities seasons each school year via our online system, which allocates students based on their preferences. Parents are able to view their child's activity commitments, together with their academic timetable, via our website portal. Students who usually take the bus home are provided with an ‘activity bus’ after activities have concluded at no additional cost.
