The school has developed an extensive co-curricular programme within the school day. It is our belief that students should be well rounded and not just focus on academics.. More details about the clubs will be announced at the start of the school year.
Students are given regular opportunities throughout the school week to engage in clubs. These range from a wide variety of sports, games, handicrafts, arts, languages and social activities. Club choices are changed every eight weeks to ensure that students get to experience a range of different experiences.
All off-site activities must serve an educational purpose that is clearly related to the curriculum. The school director will nominate an educational visits group leader to be responsible for the overall control of these activities. The group leader will assist with the coordination of the trip in terms of logistics but does not replace the need for the supervising teacher to conduct their own site assessment.
VISUAL AND PERFORMING ARTS

In secondary this develops into a performing arts programme where students work on multimedia projects that incorporate elements of drama, dance, mime, music and technology.
