Extra-curricular activities
OUR AIM IS TO GIVE EVERY PUPIL A FULL AND COMPREHENSIVE EDUCATION.

We encourage our pupils to participate in all aspects of school life. They are given the opportunity to develop their skills and confidence in many areas outside the classroom.

Many interschool house activities are held. The pupils are split into four ‘houses’ – Dewi, Dyfrig, Illtud and Teilo, and numerous competitions/ activities are held during the year eg Eisteddfod, Cross Country, Athletics, Sports Festival.

We support a variety of activities organised by Urdd Gobaith Cymru, different sporting, musical and drama events and we are delighted with our continued success in numerous and various competitions. Every October, Year 7 visit the Urdd Camp at Llangrannog.

Our public productions reflect the pupils’ talents across the Curriculum and underline the commitment and contribution of many Departments.

Visits abroad give pupils the opportunity to widen their horizons. The Modern Languages Department has developed a close link with Landerneau in Brittany and with Bergneustadt near Cologne through their annual exchange scheme. Many other continental visits are organised by numerous departments.

Additionally, many visits are organised by various departments eg to Outward Bound centres, field courses, different establishments, and courses associated with the Duke of Edinburgh Award Scheme.

A number of activities also take place during the lunch hour and after school under the voluntary direction of members of staff and sixth form students. Pupils are strongly encouraged to participate and enjoy these activities.
