Extra Curricular Activities

Developing skills in new ways

One of the many advantages of attending a GEMS Education School is the opportunity to participate in a wide range of extra-curricular activities. There are so many different sporting, academic and artistic options on offer that children can always find something of interest.  Our extra-curricular activities are designed to embellish the curriculum and to complement the all-round development of our pupils.

These activities result in increased confidence and foster good teamwork and co-operation, which in turn bring real benefits to overall achievement.
