Clubs and Societies
In addition to the exciting curriculum, the boys have further opportunities to explore and pursue a wide variety of interests through the provision of clubs and societies. As the boys progress through their school years these clubs and societies become greater in number and scope, enabling the boys to encounter a breadth of opportunities.
In most cases the clubs are run by enthusiastic teachers and are free of charge, however, in some cases specialist coaching/instruction is required and in these instances a charge is made (these are indicated by the asterisk *).
The list below highlights the variety of extra-curricular clubs in an average week.
