In the English and Media faculty, we offer a range of extra-curricular activities for students including a Debating Club and Creative Writing Club. We have taken part in debate competitions with other local schools and we participate in writing competitions throughout the year. When possible, we organise theatre trips to enable students to experience first-hand the literature they are studying. We also invite theatre groups into school to perform some of our set texts and bring them to life for our students.
