Clubs are a great opportunity to continue to progress in areas of school that you enjoy, while doing so in a relaxed environment with your friends. As well as developing greater skills and qualities in areas you are familiar with, it is a good chance to also try something new. We have so many great clubs that there is bound to be something for all pupils to immerse themselves in.
