Extra Curricular

Extra Curricular

Here at SJB, we don’t just value what happens inside the classroom, but also what happens out of it. We believe that a well-balanced, broad education, and certainly one that gets the best out of the children, should combine curricular and extracurricular activities. The activities we run, as well as day trips, residential and international trips and reflection days help to shape our students and give them experiences that will stay with them for the rest of their lives. Running activities is also a fantastic way for students to discover their hidden talents and build long-lasting relationships with their peers.

Where possible, our Year 7 and 8 students are expected to take up two activities per week, one of which should be a sporting or outdoor activity, but they can always do more! The schedule of activities is published termly, and students must sign up through Arbor. For any further information, please speak to Mr McKenna, our Assistant Head, and Miss Brooks, our House & Extra-curricular Coordinator.
