Extra-Curricular Opportunities and Enrichment
We know that great schools are built on rich extra-curricular programmes as well as excellent teaching of the curriculum.
Throughout the year there are a number of Trust-wide events that each school takes part in:
- The Griffin Sports Festival and Shakespeare Schools Festival in the Autumn Term
- Founders Day and the Griffin Science Symposium in the Spring Term
- The Griffin Arts Festival in the Summer Term.
Additionally, there are a wide range of Lammas clubs and activities taking place before school, during Lunchtime and after school. Sports facilities are used widely and the many sports teams take part in a range of tournaments. Drama and the arts are well served in clubs as well as in the curriculum. The tutorial programme gives students the opportunity to take on leadership roles.
We encourage students to try something new and to build interests that will enrich their lives beyond school and continue into adulthood.
Out of class learning takes place through regular trips and visits and a range of additional study support for students taking GCSEs and A levels is provided as needed.
