There are many opportunities for students to pursue their interests outside of the classroom.
An extensive range of extra-curricular sports is offered including football, basketball, multi gym, netball, trampolining, badminton, rugby, rounders and tennis.
The music department offers a wide variety of extra-curricular activities. Instrumental tuition on strings, brass, woodwind, guitar and percussion is presently available within school.
All students are members of Brindley House or Brough House. Throughout the year there is a wide range of inter-house activities. During the autumn and spring terms there are hockey, football, netball, basketball, table- tennis and volleyball inter-house tournaments. Alongside these run quizzes, cooking, art, performing arts, pool and darts competitions. In the summer term there are athletics, rounders, tennis and cricket competitions, culminating with Sports Day. All these events involve as many students as possible of all abilities and talents. Sixth formers are involved in the leadership of many of these activities giving them real responsibility as they develop during their time in the sixth form. The annual House Performing Arts (HPA) competition in November results in excellent music and drama evenings being held every autumn.
A wide variety of visits takes place; many are educational, while others are of a social nature. Students are also offered a wide range of opportunities for travel overseas. In recent years our students have visited Barcelona, Berlin, New York and Paris.
