Students at Smithdon High School are offered a range of opportunities to enrich their learning experiences through our extra-curricular clubs and activities. Ofsted highlighted this positively in following their recent visit, stating in their report that “Pupils can take part in many clubs and activities that help to build their character”.
These activities and clubs aim to develop students’ creative and performance skills, as well as encouraging students to work together in teams to enhance their communication and leadership skills.
Subject areas offer clubs to support learning, where students can get help with assignments and revise for assessments, as well as further develop their interest in a subject through fun activities and events.
Music and Drama activities allow students to learn musical instruments, practice for performances and prepare for concerts, as well as the annual school production. Students are given the opportunity to learn a musical instrument through our peripatetic music lessons – in small groups or 1-to-1 tuition. (Funding support is available for these lessons, if cost is a concern).
PE clubs allow students to keep fit and active, whilst also preparing for regular school fixtures in a range of sporting activities.
The Duke of Edinburgh Award scheme is offered to students at Bronze and Silver level. The award includes developing skills, volunteering and an expedition. For more information click here.
