After-School Activities

James Wilson

After-school activities are an opportunity for students to participate in activities outside of the school curriculum. They are run 15:00 - 16:00 during weekdays whilst the school is in session.

Parents and teachers are invited to share their talents through the running of an After-School Activity. If you are interested in participating please contact the school secretary.

After-School Activities are mainly intended to be non-academic and run by the teachers and parents privately. Prep however does have an academic focus and will be run by the school.

Note to Parents: The school does not endorse private tuition provided by teachers and therefore such activities cannot be conducted on school premises. If your child is experiencing any difficulties in school please contact the Headteacher immediately.

The school intends to run SAT (Collegeboard) English and Mathematics preparation within the existing school timetable and therefore SAT preparation outside of school hours should be unnecessary for those wishing to apply for universities in the US.

After-School Activities that are currently available are:
