Our students can develop their skills, knowledge and understanding by participating in a range of enrichment and enhancement activities.
For those who are talented performers, we can offer a range of school productions as well as choir or orchestra. Students perform at our Performing Arts Showcases and can compete in our annual “Battle of the Bands” or audition for a part in our annual whole College musical production. We also have very successful partnerships with the North Somerset and Taunton Music Services for peripatetic music and singing lessons. More Able and Talented musicians also enjoy the benefits of us being part of the Rhapsody project.
Dance also plays a part in our extra-curricular programmes, making use of our dedicated Dance and Drama Studio. Students take part in a number of competitions throughout the year, and have done well in North Somerset Festivals.
We have a great reputation for our physical education and sports activities, making the most of our excellent facilities. We take part in inter-schools and county leagues for Football, Hockey, Netball, Rugby and Cricket, as well competing in Athletics and Gymnastics competitions. Our students are supported by a dedicated and enthusiastic PE Faculty.
Of course, for those with a penchant for adventure, we provide opportunities to participate in trips and activities throughout the year. There is a well-stocked and lively Learning Resource Centre and the dedicated team run a daily breakfast club. The LRC team runs a huge choice of interest groups and regularly organises visits from well-known authors.
In July we hold our “Enrichment Days” for all students in Years 7, 8 and 9. During the same week Year 10 go out on their various work experience placements. Students take part in a varied and challenging choice of events and activities.
We also welcome a great many fascinating speakers and visitors, who come to talk with our students. All these visits, guests and events add tremendous value to our students’ learning experiences.
We believe that students should have a range of opportunities to develop leadership skills from playing in one of our college sports teams, being a tutor representative, a school council representative, and when they reach Year 11, perhaps even a prefect! All of these roles provide opportunities for our students to celebrate their achievements and skills and act as a positive role model to others.
