Extra Curricular

We are keen to ensure that all of our young people become active members of their community and encourage students to get involved with the numerous extra-curricular clubs and activities that we offer.

 

Extended Project Qualification (EPQ): All our students are encouraged and assisted to complete the EPQ. Students are supported to explore a topic in depth, or to be creative, in ways that take them beyond their A Level studies. It is designed to develop and foster independent learning skills that universities value.

 

Duke of Edinburgh: Every 12 student is provided with the opportunity to complete a Duke of Edinburgh’s Award, a voluntary, non-competitive programme of practical, cultural and adventurous activities, designed to support the personal and social development of young people. The Award is widely recognised by educationalists and employers.

 

Common Good: As a Catholic community our students are encouraged to support both local and national causes. We annually support and raise funds for a Christmas present appeal for the St Francis Family Centre in Poplar.

 

Insights Lecture Series: The Insights Lecture Series is a speaker programme designed to challenge, stretch and inspire our students. Each year we host talks on a diverse range of topics such as science, law and the media.

 

Visits & Trips: We know that a full programme of visits and trips is a vital way of supplementing what our students learn in the classroom. Trips include international destinations like Rome, Berlin and Poland, as well as trips within London and elsewhere within the UK
