Participation in clubs and societies complements time spent in the classroom. We see it as vital to pupils’ wellbeing.

Not a moment of the day is wasted at Guildford High School.

We are a busy school and all girls are encouraged to join clubs and push their boundaries. With more than 70 different activities on offer each week, the biggest problem the girls face is how to fit them all in. Clubs run before school, at lunchtime and after school every day and our extracurricular programme goes hand in hand with our academic programme.

The sport, music and drama pages of this website highlight the huge range of opportunities on offer to our girls in these areas but there is a host of other activities for girls to enjoy. A sample of the types of clubs available to girls in the Senior School can be found below:
