After School Clubs

A strong feature of our College is the wide range of extra-curricular activities available to all pupils, as we believe this is important to develop social skills and self-esteem.  We are proud of all our pupils’ achievements, whether in the classroom, on the sports field or on the stage.  We promote and encourage involvement in extra-curricular activities for all pupils and reward regular participation each month with additional merit points.

In addition to these activities, fieldwork and out-of-school learning opportunities are organised for students, alongside a wide range of optional visits each year within Northern Ireland and further afield. This includes the ski trip, football trip to a Premier League match and local places of interest, London theatre trip, and others.
