All year groups are also supported by our strong extra-curricular and wellbeing programmes with a dedicated week of activities held throughout the school each year


We follow a ‘sport for all’ philosophy. Our curriculum gives girls opportunity to develop their physical literacy across a wide ranging spectrum of sporting activities, ranging from the traditional to the more niche. This is a well researched approach to the PE curriculum and has been proven to increase self confidence, enjoyment, and participation levels at post 16. More about Sport here.


We also run an excellent STEM program, with opportunities to explore and develop a variety of skills and participate in many challenges. STEM is also part of our successful National Science Week and the popular STEM Family Challenge Evening always attracts large numbers.
