Extra Curricular Activities
Leisure Activity Programme
The Leisure Activity Programme takes place Monday to Friday between 4:30 and 5:30pm. Most activities are supervised by an adult (usually a member of the teaching staff) though some may be run by senior students or external expertise. Typical selections of the activities offered are listed below. The activities, which number over 100 per week, vary from term to term. If there is sufficient pupil interest but insufficient staff expertise, outsiders are brought in to take the activity.
