Tutor Time:

Additionally, every student has a 25 minutes tutor time session on a daily basis which addresses a series of themes connected to our set tutor time programme, our assembly programme, and our Focus Week programme, which more widely contribute to our PHSEE programme.

KS3 Enrichment:

Furthermore, we run a wide range of extra-curricular activities – including sports, performing arts, homework clubs and subject area clubs – throughout the school year.

The school-run sessions run alongside a series of externally provided sessions which come at a charge for students

These are in addition to more formal activities including sports team matches and school shows and performances.
