Extra Curricular Activities

Previous Page

Studies around the world have shown that students who take part in extra curricular activities do better academically than those who do not, and interestingly, it has been shown further that those who do the best take part in both sport and no sport- related school based extra curricular activities.

The benefits include:

  • Developing interests and talents
  • Having a break from academic studies
  • Meeting new people and making new friends
  • Develop good relationships with teachers
  • Developing social skills
  • Improving discipline and organisation
  • Being occupied and interested rather than bored which can lead some children to getting into trouble

Above all, for us at Grey Court, we believe strongly that students who engage positively in the full life of the school will enjoy school more, benefit enormously, be happy and therefore do well.

So much so do we believe in the importance of providing these opportunities for our students, that we have included in our home-school agreement the aspiration that every student in the school will participate in at least one extra curricular activity in the year.

We aim to offer something to suit everyone at Grey Court – not only in quantity, but in range and variety. There is the usual Sports, Music and Drama- but lots more: cooking, textiles, creative writing, creative computing, technology and science workshops as well as maths surgeries and languages . We are continuously adding to the list so please see the weekly e-bulletin for the latest information.
