The Faculty strongly believes that students deserve a rich, supportive, extra-curricular program. Over the years we have offered a variety of clubs, as they have been requested. This has ranged from a book club, a citizenship club, to a homework club to an archive and digital movie club. If students have an idea for a club, they should see their teacher
These are a few of our current projects and clubs:
  • Students have the opportunity to come to the History Society, that runs on a Wednesday lunchtime in H1.
  • We have recently been working with Bring Out Your Dead Productions, discovering the truths of the East Anglian Witch trials
  • There is a bi-annual trip to the Battlefields open to all years
  • Every year we hold a trip abroad, open to GCSE or 6th Form, trips have included; Paris, Granada, Rome Berlin, Munich and most recently Washington and New York. We have trips planned for Washington, Belgium and Paris in 2018
Extra-Curricular Opportunities in Sixth Form
It is also important for students who have chosen to continue their studies beyond GCSE to engage in their subjects in various ways, which is why we offer:
  • Government and Politics visit to Parliament
  • Visits from guest speakers, such as local MPs
  • A chance to go to Auschwitz with the Holocaust educational trust (dependent on places allocated by the HET)
  • Conference days
  • Trips abroad
  • Position of Captains
  • Sixth form history/university preparation 


Some recent activities...
