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. At Grey Court we encourage students to get involved in activities that challenge, stimulate, are fun, reflect life, provide opportunities for leadership, help build self-belief, develop social skills, provide health benefits and promote excellence.
Studies around the world have shown that students who take part in extra-curricular activities do better academically than those who do not. Furthermore, those who do the best take part in both sport and non-sport related extra-curricular activities.
We believe in the value of these extra opportunities so much 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 during the year.
Here are just some of the clubs available:
|Visual and Performing Arts||Sport||Other|
|Junior Art Club||Athletics||Allotment Club|
|Senior Art Club||Badminton||Chess|
|Senior Drama Club||Cheerleading||Cooking|

"When the bell goes at the end of the day there is still so much we can participate in and enjoy."
