Co-Curricular @ Home

With lessons occurring in the mornings for those on British Summer Time or UTC +1, we are wanting to provide a range of activities for pupils to be able to select from so that they are never in the situation where they can say they are ‘bored with nothing to do’. The same applies to our overseas pupils in their mornings. For more details, please contact the relevant member of staff via email to let them know that you are wanting to join their activity. All activities are listed below!
