The Faculty strongly believes that students deserve a rich, supportive, extra-curricular program. Over the years we have offered a variety of clubs, as they have been requested. This has ranged from a book club, a citizenship club, to a homework club to an archive and digital movie club to Warhammar club. If students have an idea for a club, they should see their teacher
These are a few of our current projects and clubs:
Students have the opportunity to come to the History Society, that runs on a Wednesday lunchtime in H1.
We worked with Bring Out Your Dead Productions, discovering the truths of the East Anglian Witch trials
There is a bi-annual trip to the Battlefields open to all years
Every year we hold a trip abroad, open to GCSE or 6th Form, trips have included; Paris, Granada, Rome Berlin, Munich and most recently Washington and New York.
