Thomas Estley Community College


Extra Curricular

We believe that the curriculum should not be constrained to lesson time, and that all pupils should have enrichment opportunities to support or stretch their learning, to enhance their life experience and simply for leisure and enjoyment.

All students have access to extra-curricular trips and educational visits including foreign and British residentials, ski and sports trips, visits to enhance the curriculum, fieldwork and sports fixtures.

As well as sports performance, students also have the opportunity to perform in a range of dramatic and musical events, supported by a variety of performing arts clubs, from the more typical  drama club, orchestra, strings, etc through to jazz band.

A range of clubs take place after school and during school lunchtimes across all subject areas, in English, Media, Maths, Science, Humanities, PE, Performing Arts, Art, Design and Technology, including our ArtsAward provision (we are a national best practice centre). There are also other special interest or targeted clubs such as Dr Who Club, Warhammer, Bees Knees, Engineering Club, Christian Group, French Penpals, Radio Club and a full set of homework support clubs. Our Magistrates Group regularly wins the regional finals and many of our teams and clubs have achieved rewards and recognition.

Full details are circulated to our students at the start of the year and are also published in our annual Activities Directory, with regular reminders in the college bulletin. Please see our current list of lunchtime clubs attached below for your information.
