Extra-Curricular

Education at Ashby School does not stop at 3.05pm.

After school, students can take advantage of a busy programme of educational, sporting and other activities, from trampolining and Show Club (for budding stage performers) to coursework catch-up sessions.

After-school activities give students the chance to take up new interests and take part in organised activities, for little or no charge. After-school sessions are a great opportunity for students to build confidence, develop new skills and meet new people.

Most clubs and extra lessons are held after school on Mondays, Wednesdays and Thursdays, when late buses are available free of charge at 4.30pm to take students home.

Some extra curricular events take place at weekends or during school holidays. Students are also encouraged to take part in trips and visits throughout the year.

A list of regular after school clubs and activities can be found below. (Details may be subject to change. Students are advised to check with the relevant member of staff or, where appropriate, the Faculty Office before staying after school for a new club or activity.)

Other specific study support and revision classes are listed in the ‘Subject Information’ section. This is updated termly.

After-school House activities are advertised in House assemblies, tutor bulletins and the student bulletin.
