The programme of Weekday Activities aims to enrich the curriculum with a range of co curricular options. A variety of activities are offered for Years 1 – 7. Students sign up at an activity fair each term for the activities they would like to take part in. Most activities take place during sessions 1, 2 and 3
Many of the activities are organised and run by departments such as Art, PE, Drama and Music with staffing mainly being provided from within those departments. Other Activities such as Mandarin, CCF and the Duke of Edinburgh’s Award have specialist staff.
The activities offered have a season bias with more outside activities being offered in the summer term.
All girls are expected to have a good mix of activities and prep.
