St George's

Clubs and Activities


St George’s offers an enviable range of co-curricular clubs and activities as we very much value an all-round approach to the education we offer here.  We want to encourage the girls to get involved with as much as they can, learn new skills and challenge themselves so that they can develop their talents and interests.  Club fairs take place at the beginning of term where pupils can sign up to as many clubs as they would like to for that term.  We also have a Co-Curricular Awards Evening, a fun event, where certificates are awarded for excellence and the girls’ achievements are recognised publically.

Clubs and activities change every term although some of the clubs are run all year round.

Duke of Edinburgh

St George’s actively encourages all pupils to participate in the Duke of Edinburgh Award scheme.  Duke of Edinburgh encourages young people to try a range of different activities they may not previously have experienced and has four sections that make up each level of the Award programme.  The girls are required to complete a physical, skills and volunteering section and undertake an assessed expedition which also entails a pre-expedition practice and training element.

There are three levels of the Duke of Edinburgh Scheme: Bronze, Silver and Gold.  Those who successfully complete their Gold Award go to Buckingham Palace in order to receive their Award.  Certificates are awarded to participants upon completion of each level.  Both Silver and Gold Awards are highly regarded by both employers and universities as they demonstrate that participants can work independently and part of a team, undertake projects and use their own initiative.  Those who complete the DofE scheme often include the achievement as part of their UCAS statement when applying to university.

Our Expedition provider at St George’s is Sam Sykes, who has many years’ experience in organising DofE for schools up and down the country.  For more information about the company please click here. The pre-expedition practice and training weekends are one day and one night longer than the final assessed expeditions and pupils acquire skills such as camp craft, basic first aid, orienteering and map reading skills, plan their own routes and put together all their kit.  Completed as part of a group, the girls are supervised by experienced and highly trained instructors at all times as well as a member of staff from school.

Expeditions take place in various locations ranging from The New Forest, Brecon Beacons to the Lake District and the girls really do enjoy being outside, exploring the countryside and taking part in outdoor pursuits as a break from their school work.

The school provides a good range of extra-curricular activities.
