After School Activities

Mark Stubbs
Deputy Headmaster

All schools recognise the importance of academic rigour supported by creative arts and physical exercise. We, at Heathfield Knoll, are no different.

However, we don’t believe that this is enough; all pupils need breadth, stretch, challenge and stimuli beyond the confines of a curriculum if they are to develop as well-rounded individuals. For this reason Enrichment forms part of the weekly timetable.

This is an inclusive programme of activity which aims to introduce children to new interests or to provide them with an opportunity to achieve an extracurricular qualification.

Enrichment activities have included Sports or Language Leaders, First Aid, Classical Studies, Chess, Politics, Calligraphy, Art Appreciation, STEM club and Orchestra, to name a few.

Activity does not stop at the end of classes. There is a full programme of After School Activities (ASAs) running each afternoon.

ASAs are a less formal opportunity to explore a hobby or sport. These change termly and may include activities such as Drama rehearsals, Nerf Wars, Mini-Kickers football, Orienteering, Dance and Ballet.
