  • Extracurricular Activities

    On four afternoons a week our Senior, Prep, Pre-Prep and even Early Years students have access to the LIA programme. For our younger students in particular this is a journey of self-discovery. Hidden skills and aptitudes often come to light, giving them a genuine sense of achievement from succeeding in a totally unexpected area. It is all great fun and an opportunity to make new friends away from the classroom or their Houses. All of our activities are also designed to be aligned, where possible, with the key features of Leadership for a Better World. Students from Year 1 also have a wide choice of lunchtime activities.
