Throughout the year we organise a wide range of extra-curricular activities designed to build on what our students learn in the classroom.
Many of our staff run lunch time or after school clubs where students can explore further the subjects they enjoy the most. There are frequent 'enrichment days' where students are tasked with challenges designed to enhance thier skills, develop their confidence and stimulate their interest in topics such as Business Enterprise, Internationalism, Citizenship and STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths).
STEM = Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths
The UK has been at the forefront of design and innovation throughout history. British designers have been responsible for many great inventions, and are still commonly acknowledged to be among the best in the world when it comes to developing new solutions to existing problems.
British inventions have had an enormous impact on our world. For example, imagine how different life would be today if Michael Faraday had not built the first simple electrical generator, or if James Watt had not developed the steam engine?
At STEM Club, you will develop a range of projects. We believe STEM should incorporate the latest technology and inspire a new generation of designers, engineers and scientists.
This year we will be running several projects within the areas of robotics and design innovation. We have teamed up with companies such as Rolls Royce and EDF Energy to birng local expertise into the STEM Club sessions.
STEM Club - Every Tue afterschool, 3.15 - 4.00pm

Mrs Whitlock runs a Chess Club every week on Thursday lunchtimes.
Students from all year groups are welcome to attend. Just turn up and play one game each week for seven weeks. Those who lose each week can keep on coming to the club; they will play others who lost their previous weeks game. Each week goodies are given out and the top boy and top girl from each age group, as well as anyone scoring 15+ points will qualify to attend the next round of chess competitions at Millfield School each year.
