At St Christopher’s we firmly believe in an all-round education where academic pursuits are supported by wonderful extra-curricular opportunities.
Our wide ranging programme of activities, societies, events and trips allow pupils to find alternative avenues of interest to explore and enjoy. By involving the pupils in this rich programme we hope that their enjoyment of school life will be enhanced and personal skills will be developed.
Our Extra-Curricular Activities programme (ECAs) here at St Christopher’s is designed to provide pupils with an opportunity to sample a wide and varied range of extra-curricular activities from Year 1 to Year 13.
Over 100 different activities are currently offered, varying seasonally and with interest expressed by staff and pupils. There is no charge for the vast majority of ECAs (eg Crafty Creations, Cricket, Computer Graphics and Lego Robotics) however, some may involve a fee for additional costs, to cover specialist materials or external tuition (eg horse riding, ice skating, Junior Masterchef).
It is not uncommon for pupils to develop a long-lasting interest and enthusiasm for their activities, continuing on to more advanced levels as they progress through and beyond the school. ECAs therefore make an important contribution to the all-round education that St Christopher’s provides.
