We have numerous extra-curricular clubs on offer, taking place both at lunchtime and after school.
These activities are tailored to suit each age group and vary from arts and crafts to sporting and practical activities and have been designed to assist students develop their hobbies, strengths and skills. They also teach the students the necessary skills of how to work on their own using their initiative and also as part of a team.
Many students, who wish to experience adventure and take up a challenge, seize the opportunity to participate in the Duke of Edinburgh’s Award Scheme. Students can start with their Bronze award and progress through to the Gold award, which teaches vital life skills and adds substance to their CV’s. There are numerous expeditions including an annual Sixth Form trip to Morocco.
Students travel abroad on day trips or longer with various departments further developing their interests and personalities. Recent trips have included our regular Geographical trip, History and Art expeditions, language excursions, our annual ski trip and numerous sports tours, the most recent being a Football tour to Holland. We are also greatly looking forward to our forthcoming Cricket and Netball tour to Barbados in April 2015.
As part of this vibrant extracurricular programme we have a termly sign up system where we encourage our pupils to attend at least three lunchtime extracurricular clubs during our extended lunchtimes which are 80 minutes in duration. Pupils can do more activities should they so wish, and we encourage them to do so where possible. We have almost 100 activities to choose from which you can see form our list below.
We believe it is important that our students should be aware of those less fortunate than themselves. Our School charity changes each year and offers new challenges to develop and put into practice ideas for money-raising ventures. We also provide opportunities for the older students to help with community projects both at home and abroad.
Embracing all that we offer at Lingfield, our young men and women will leave us ready to face the increasingly international employment market with confidence and a strong set of values and integrity.
