Extra Curricular Activities

Elizabeth Garrett Anderson School runs an extensive programme of Out of School Hours Learning activities which includes before school,  lunchtime,  after school, weekend and holiday activities. There are also trips abroad, trips to outdoor activity centres around Britain and trips to theatres and galleries, both to perform and watch the arts.  The Library and ICT spaces are open before school, at lunchtimes and after school.   A Breakfast Club runs every morning in the dining hall.

 

The programme aims to cater for the different needs of the student population.  The programme  reflects  curriculum led activities, such as homework clubs and drop in sessions for GCSE students that extend and enable a student, but also offers interest led or new activities that enrich a student’s experience.

 

Examples of enriching activities are the art, maths, English and debating clubs which are run by EGA staff and visiting tutors.  Others include a range of sports, arts, drama and music clubs.  These clubs contribute to the programme of school events, such as performances and Sports Day.   Many of these clubs are supported by organisations such as Hogan Lovells Law Company, The Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment, The Cubitt Gallery, the Almeida Theatre and “Debate Mate”.

 

There are GCSE revision sessions offered throughout the year in half term, school holidays and Saturdays.

 

We finish school at 3.05 p.m. on a Thursday to enable younger students to attend an enrichment activity.  We ask all Year 7s to attend at least one club in the Autumn term.

Some of our activities are supported by the Jack Petchey Foundation.

Please encourage your daughter to take part in extra activities.
