Enrichment Clubs

Architecture Club

Architecture Club introduces pupils from Year 7 – Year 10 the exciting work of building design; developing skills in drawing, designing and model making. Pupils will create artwork in response to architecture from different periods of history and cultures; as well as responding to various design briefs. Upcoming sessions will include printmaking, collage, cardboard construction & photography.

Art Club

Art Club is offered to all students Y7-Y10 after school every Wednesday. It gives students the opportunity to explore their own artistic impulses and materials, processes and ways of working with independence and confidence. All of the resources of the art department are available to students, giving them the chance to develop their own interests outside of the regular curriculum.

Boys’ Company

This is our Boys’ only company (sorry girls!). We study every style of dance you can imagine, but also focus on fitness and strength. Our goal is to improve technique and stamina. This is an after school dance club open to all students but aimed at those who do not have a huge amount of dance experience. Sessions will run for one hour after school.

Commercial Company

Commercial is a mix between street and Jazz and is super sassy! Although this class is aimed largely at our female students, we operate a fully inclusive policy in Performing Arts and any boys who wish to come along are more than welcome! Sessions will run for one hour after school.

Computer Science Club

Computer Science club is a weekly club that allows students to expand their Computer Science and programming knowledge through the use of mini programmable robots. These robots are built with Lego parts and allow students to create their own robots that can compete against each other in a series of games and tasks such as football, sumo wrestling and racing. CS Club is always looking for more students to join, as the more that join the club, the more can compete!

Digital Leaders Club

If you decide to become a Digital Leader, you will attend weekly training sessions where you will complete a selection of online activities to help you learn more about e-safety. Once you have completed the training, you will go into local primary schools to help younger children learn about how to stay safe online. We have space for 10 students from Year 7 or 8 to join the program. If you’re interested, collect an application form from your Computing teacher today!

Drama Club

Drama club is a great place to develop your skills, to build your confidence in front of supportive like-minded students and to just have loads of fun! As a member of the Drama club, you can expect plenty of performance opportunities. This year, our drama club members got to perform extracts of A Midsummer Night’s Dream at The Norwich Playhouse and were treated to a complimentary professional lighting workshop as part of this project. Last year they took part in an Ormiston Victory Facade showcase, performing their devised pieces. They also went to The New Wolsey Theatre in Ipswich and took part in the Shakespeare Festival.
