After School Activities

After School Activities

During the school week we offer an extensive range of clubs, societies and activities that our pupils can take advantage of.

Most of these run in our after-school activities programme, with two sessions from 16.30 – 17.20 and 17.25 – 18.15. In addition, there are talks and lectures that occur in the early evening, both on site and in Cambridge. Pupils, with guidance from house staff, have responsibility for choosing their wider curricular activities and signing up for them each term.
