Electives is a popular programme of activities that fulfils our ambition to provide 'extra' provision for all pupils. Learning and recreation activities take place within and beyond the school boundary. Staff and pupils work collaboratively with many other experts in our community. Developing this network of community links is intentional; pupils develop a range of skills, encounter new challenges and enhance their talents.
Previous Ofsted reports positively support this dimension of our curriculum:

Year 7 pupils engage in a cycle of diverse set workshops.
Some Electives require fees; parents please be aware that in cases of financial hardship some support is available.
For further information or advice, please contact Mrs Harris, Electives Co-ordinator. Pupils are welcome to see Mrs Harris in school to talk about choices.
