Junior Clubs

The huge number of extracurricular clubs and activities offered in the Junior School add to the rich range of experiences for girls. When girls first join us in Reception, extracurricular clubs are kept to a minimum as unstructured play time is important at this age. As the girls get older the chances for fun, for enrichment and to acquire new skills increase.

Over 90 clubs meet each week ranging from fencing to yoga, classics to chess and art to percussion. There really is a club for everyone. The only problem our girls have is trying to work out how to fit them all in!
