Activities take place throughout the week, and pupils attend the activities that most interest them and that they can fit into their busy schedules.
Some activities are extensions of the games programme, and make use of facilities or coaching expertise that may not be available in the usual games times. Activities such as Fencing, Basketball, or Canoeing are in this category.
Pupils in Years 7 to 9 are expected to have a full activity programme; as pupils have more academic pressures and coursework then allowance is made for that, though the benefits of pursuing enjoyable hobbies and pastimes are never forgotten.
All of Years 9 and 10 take part in the school’s Combined Cadet Force on a Thursday afternoon, and the majority of Form 4 begin the Duke of Edinburgh Award Scheme. The Army and Air Force sections of the CCF give the pupils the chance for outward bound activities, helicopter and fixed-wing flying, and weekend expeditions in the Brecon Beacons.
