Extra-Curricular Activities

There are many opportunities for pupils to take part in activities outwith the formal school curriculum. These range from regular weekly clubs or sporting activities to those such as field-trips or foreign visits which will take place only once or twice per session. These activities reflect the interests of staff and as staff changes occur so activities may change. Whatever the activity, young people can gain a great deal and expand their interests, skills and friendships by being involved in school life in this way.

Among the activities/clubs recently offered to pupils have been:

Badminton Golf
Basketball Hockey (boys and girls)
Beekeeping International Film Club
Charities Jewellery Making
Chess Orchestra and Ensembles
Choirs Rugby
Dance Sailing
Debating Scripture Union
Duke of Edinburgh Award Table Tennis
Eco-schools Theatre Visits
Fair Trade NBHS Ukulele Orchestra
Gardening Young Engineers

The victorious 7-a-side football team

In addition to the above activities, pupils at differing year stages regularly have the opportunity to participate in outdoor education and/or residential trips.

In recent sessions, S1 have had Sports Days in the final term.

S2 have also had Sports Days and an annual ski trip to the Alps.

S3 continue their long tradition of activities week in May, when the timetable is suspended and pupils take part in a range of opportunities and experiences, within the UK and abroad. Particularly popular are the outdoor education residential courses.

S4 have a trip to the Alps.
