Head's Challenge

The Head's Challenge is our year long programme that brings together our Extra-curricular Clubs, House Events, Outdoor Adventure and Charity work. Clubs are a compulsory part of the school day, and some examples are listed below. They are divided into 4 groups: 'Community', 'Sport', 'Arts', and 'Skills'. The more different groups a student takes part in through the year, the higher the level of Head's Challenge they are eligible to be awarded.

Clubs run on a Monday and Thursday for Years 7 and 8 and on a Tuesday and Wednesday for Years 9 and 10.

House Events run on a Tuesday for Years 7 and 8, and one Tuesday each month Year 7 have Homework Club, looking at cross curricular learning and Year 8 have Q?rius, looking at careers ideas.  House Events run on a Monday for Years 9 and 10, and one Monday per month both years have Silent Prep, to help them develop individual Study Skills.
