King’s exciting range of extra-curricular activities helps children learn about themselves as well as the world.
In line with our aim to instil a love of learning, we offer a wonderfully rich and varied extra-curricular programme that enables pupils to discover and explore their personal talents and interests. This is hugely beneficial. Not only do children have fun, they gain a powerful sense of curiosity to find out more about the world around them.
Being situated in the beautiful Cotswolds allows us to regularly take our children out into the countryside to experience nature first hand. For example, trips to Over Farm allow children to learn about where their food comes from and gives them the opportunity to interact with animals.
Music-related activities abound with Junior School Orchestra practice, Recorder Club, and Chorister Theory sessions. Theatre is well represented with a weekly Drama Club and many opportunities to perform on stage.
Sporting clubs are hugely popular in Junior School and include a variety of lunchtime and after-school activities such as mixed football, High Five Netball and Zumba Kids. For those who are interested in the creative, we offer craft clubs, poetry competitions and cookery classes to name a few.
An extra-curricular highlight for many children is the annual Year 6 Isle of Wight Residential trip, which is run at the end of the Summer Term. The trip offers a chance for our pupils who have reached the end of their time in Junior School to experience a new environment and get a taste for the residential trips that are to come in Senior School.
