Co-curricular clubs are a huge part of our girls’ lives at the school, providing the opportunity to learn something new and hone skills outside the classroom. We offer a huge range of co-curricular opportunities for our pupils at every age. You can take a peek at a handful of them on our Instagram account.
In the Junior School, once a week a group of Year 6 pupils get together and learn coding skills. Led by Mrs Pooley, our girls are learning how to understand programming, problem-solving and design with real-world applications. This particular week, the club were working on creating a wire loop game from scratch including building the physical components.
We ensure that our pupils have the opportunity to learn about computing, coding and robotics at all ages. Creative solutions, lateral thinking and problem solving are all vital skills to better equip our girls for the future.
Every week, pupils across the Junior School flip, tumble and leap in our Gymnastics club! Led by Miss Green, girls of all ages get to learn new skills and spend quality time with their friends. This week, Year 4 were practising their jumps on the trampoline.
Our co-curricular clubs provide our pupils with the space and resources to focus on their passions or to try something new in a fun and supportive environment. The club is also supported by Year 12 Lily, an excellent opportunity to encourage mentorship across the year groups.
Gardening & Crafts Club
Our Year 3 girls put their gardening gloves on every Tuesday! Supported by Mrs Puddephatt and Mrs Willmott, members of the club are growing wildflowers and potatoes in the outdoor plant beds by the dining hall, and making their own gardening gear like watering cans from plastic milk bottles.
Understanding how to grow and care for plants is a very useful skill. During lockdown we saw how gardening helps support positive mental health and wellbeing. We can’t wait to see what the club’s plants look like in a few months time!
