Extra Curricular Clubs and Activities


A full enrichment programme of visits, clubs and additional GCSEs taken outside the timetabled lessons are at the very heart of County Upper life. Its success is recognised in some of the external awards we have received.

Our journeys' programme includes:

  • Language trips/exchanges to France, Germany, Japan and Spain
  • Sports' tours to Barcelona and South Africa as well as an annual ski trip
  • Tours for our musicians which have included Suffolk, Virginia, USA; Venice and Cathedral Evensongs most recently to Bath and Wells
  • An annual Physics trip to CERN and a biennial conservation trip (Borneo in 2014, Madagascar in 2012)
  • History visits to the Battlefields, Munich, Berlin and Washington
  • A classics/Geography trip to Pompeii
  • Art tours to Paris.

In addition there are one-off trips, monthly theatre visits and residentials for schemes like the Duke of Edinburgh award and the Engineering Education Scheme.

GCSEs in Astronomy, Dance, Latin and Japanese can be taken in extra-curricular time, together with graded theory music examinations.

What, When, Where?

You can use the links below to get information on the Duke of Edinburgh scheme, the programme of clubs for this term, and because we have so much sport, a separate list of sport-related clubs is also available.

More information about other extra-curricular activity can be found on the departments' microsites.
