Clubs and Societies
The Lower School offers an extensive range of extra-curricular activities and events. There’s something for everyone and we expect every pupil to involve themselves in some aspect of our programme. Not that they need much encouragement – they thoroughly enjoy participating in the many different clubs on offer and show great commitment to the music groups, drama productions, choir, sports teams and other available activities.
Current and recent activities in the Lower School include sports clubs, Lego, Minecraft, dance, theatre, gardening, eco, badminton, Natural History Club, tennis, fencing, languages, orienteering, 8th Norwich Cubs and Scouts, baseball, maths, cricket nets, craft, football, desktop publishing, Hockey Hard Hitters, movie-making, scratch, cartoon strip, music groups, cycling awareness, choir, computing, juggling, senior strings, chess, junior strings, hot air, swing band, steel pans, recorders and guitar circle.
We field Sports Teams in rugby, netball, hockey, cricket, rounders, cross-country, athletics, swimming and tennis.
Lower School stages two musicals each year. Recent productions include Alice in Wonderland, Olivia!, Jack and the Beanstalk and The Wizard of Oz.
The Lower School provides a comprehensive range of Before, During and After-school clubs (97 at the last count) suitable for all year-groups, all abilities and, through our Natural History Club, all family members too!
We believe that opportunity lies at the heart of our broad curriculum, nurturing and developing pupils in preparation for the future. Teaching staff, parents and external experts deliver a myriad of different clubs and activities during the course of the academic year, on the basis of suggestions made by the School Council. Clubs provide the chance for pupils to try something new, to develop and improve an existing skill, to further extend themselves. The following are just some of the activities available:
Tennis, rugby fitness, boys’ netball, running & sprint, football (indoor/outdoor), canoeing, badminton, ultimate frisbee, girls’ rugby, softball, baseball, hockey, cricket, rounders, swimming and fencing.
