Enrichment Programme

Participation in the very wide range of activities which we provide beyond the academic curriculum is not just an optional extra at The Grange: it is an essential part of our success. We believe that the high level of academic performance that we know here is achieved in no small part because our children and young people are happy at school and fully involved in its wider life. The wealth of extra-curricular activities on offer gives every pupil the opportunity to discover and exploit the talents and interests that give life balance and richness, promoting both happiness and motivation.

From Brownie Pack to Young Enterprise, Suzuki Violin lessons to award winning choirs, through an astonishing variety of clubs and societies as well as in external competitions, our pupils participate in enormous numbers with great energy and commitment, some to national success. That is also true on the sports field, where a large number of pupils represents the school in a good range of sports, regularly performing with distinction in national and regional competitions. In addition, a very high proportion of pupils across both sites learns musical instruments, takes dance lessons or prepares for Speech and Drama exams.

On top of all of these, every pupil can find a niche in the House System, through which a wide range of talents -musical, sporting, creative and intellectual - is tested in competitions at various age groups through all parts of both Junior and Senior schools. Pupils (including those who might not have the opportunity to represent the school, the county or the region as so many do) take enormous pride in their contribution; the presentation of the award for best House is an eagerly anticipated highlight of the year.
