We believe that extra-curricular activities are key in helping our pupils to develop into rounded individuals. There is a great variety of cultural experiences, sport, performing arts, outdoor education, trips and an exciting range of visiting speakers, authors, poets and drama workshops.

There really is something for everyone: pupils can choose to join a large number of clubs which enable them to explore their interests and discover new ones.

There are boundless opportunities for girls to discover what they are passionate about and equally what they like to do for fun. These include activities such as mindfulness, yoga, library and eco clubs.

There is also a whole host of sports activities such as gym, netball, hockey, lacrosse, tennis and football.

If your daughter enjoys performing arts, then there are opportunities to join the choir or Drama Club.

With a fantastic team of peripatetic music teachers, private music lessons are available at an extra cost. Similarly, LAMDA lessons and ballroom dance lessons are also offered, again at an extra cost. Every Junior School girl participates in the musicals and plays that punctuate the school year.

Extra-curricular activities take place at lunchtime and after school, finishing in time for pupils to get buses.

Visiting speakers

There is also a steady stream of visitors coming into school, including authors, poets and scientists, all helping to ensure that our pupils have as many opportunities as possible to learn about the world around them and more about themselves as they progress through our Junior School.

Trips and Visits

Trips and visits bring the curriculum to life. All pupils attend a residential trip every year, giving them opportunity to try different outdoor pursuits. These are always great fun and the girls benefit from fresh air and developing new skills from ghyll scrambling to abseiling.

Closer to home, trips enhance and expand their knowledge in different areas of the curriculum. Visits can include historic houses, animal sanctuaries, walking tours of Withington or science trips to Jodrell Bank.
