We are very proud of the huge range of clubs and after-school activities which pupils are encouraged to participate in. 'Session Six’, as it is known, provides many opportunities to take part in music, drama and sports, as well as a regular ‘Homework Club’ in the school Library. The school employs sports coaches and peripatetic teachers to support this programme and many staff give of their time freely to run these extra sessions. Also during the Spring and early Summer Terms, we run Session Six GCSE Revision for Year 11 which can be found on our "Exams Results & Timetable" page under the School Information Menu.
The list below gives examples of those that have run in the past. These do change, so please do not consider the list to be definitive, but it does give some idea of the kind of things that go on. Details of each day's after-school activities are given in the daily bulletin sheet which is delivered to each tutor group at morning registration.
Examples of the types of after-school activities:
- Football (Girls and Boys)
- Chess Club
- Fitness Training in our Fitness Suite
- Academic Subjects
- Young Enterprise
- Karate and Self-defence
- Show Band
- Rock School
- Duke of Edinburgh Award
- Library Private Study
- Chess Club
- String Group
- Cross Country
We provide a coach service so that pupils who stay behind after school are able to get home safely. Pupils must report to reception at break time on the day they require transport home and book and pay for their place. The bus leaves school promptly at 4.15pm for Cosford, Albrighton, Priorslee, Randlay, Stirchley and Hollinswood and the cost is £1.50, unless pupils have an AT Brown bus pass, or a green late bus slip authorised by a teacher, in which case this charge does not apply. The green slip will only be authorised if the pupil is staying at school until 4pm for a teaching or learning need, which has been requested by a teacher. If they do not have money for the journey they will be asked to obtain a token from finance or telephone a parent to collect them. Please Note - There are no late buses after school on a Friday.
