Sixth Form students choose from a wide variety of options for their time-tabled games lessons. Including gym in our on-site fitness suite, swimming in our 25m pool and rock climbing on our indoor climbing wall. Further options include badminton, cross-county and table-tennis.
Music opportunities abound with more than 20 music groups to choose from each week. Everything from Swing Band to the First Orchestra and from Rock bands to the Sovereign Singers. Our Sixth Form students form a vital part of the music ensembles, often leading groups of younger pupils.
