Clubs & After School Activities – Year 11

Activities and trips outside of the classroom are an important part of our curriculum and we believe these experiences enrich students’ lives and deepen their understanding of subjects.

Here a number of fantastic opportunities on offer for our Year 11 students this year.*

Trip What’s It About
Lego Robotics Annual competition with other schools involving problem solving, teamwork and programming.
Ski Trip 2020 Last year’s trip to Italy was a hit.  Fresh air and strenuous exercise are all good for physical, mental health and wellbeing, not to mention a great life experience exploring the world!
York Trip Geography GCSE field trip which is a compulsory element of the GCSE course.
London Trip For art, photography and textile students to support their GCSE coursework.
France Battlefields Trip The trip links well with both French and History.  It concentrates on the north of France and its links with England and is appropriate in the 500th anniversary year of the Field of the Cloth of Gold.  We also visit sites of importance from WW1 and WW2 such as Atlantic Wall and V1 launch sites in St.Omer.
Top of the Bench Competition A practical competition to support GCSE Chemistry. Our students got to the final at the University of Birmingham last year and came top out of all the schools competing from Yorkshire.
Shakespeare Festival Performance of a classic Shakespeare play, Macbeth in 2019, at the University of Leeds theatre to support GCSE drama studies.
London Trip Weekend trip for drama students to visit the theatre and see the capital to support their GCSE studies.
Hackathon (with Paralax) For our computing students to gain an understanding of programming in the real world from an industry expert.
Maths Inspiration Lectures Delves into real world applications of mathematics.
