Extra Curricular

Our extra-curricular programme of clubs, activities and trips is wide-ranging firmly based on the girls' preferences and requests. Activities happen each week at lunchtimes and before and after school. Educating the whole child, broadening horizons and offering opportunities for new experiences is an essential part of education beyond the classroom. The vast majority of these are free of charge as this aspect of school life is so important.


Range of Activities

The range of activities and clubs on offer range from a wide selection of sports, including all the traditional team sports like hockey and netball, as well as the more individual, such as running and swimming. Where a girl would like to do something that we do not currently offer, we will do our best to facilitate this and, living in Oxford, almost any form of sport or leisure activity is available. If the Performing Arts are what energise you, we have termly Performing Arts evenings to showcase the girls' talents. Music is also well represented in this category with a number of choirs and ensembles. The Creative Arts are also exceptionally popular and again girls are encouraged to gain new skills.
