Fantastic opportunities outside the curriculum are on offer at TCS as we believe that providing and encouraging these are essential to developing the skills we want to see in our learners: resilience, inquisitive minds, dedication, commitment, team work and a growth mindset to enable them to grow as young people.
Teachers give up time to provide an excellent range of extra-curricular opportunities for our students, including lunchtime and after school clubs, projects, day trips and residential visits. In a typical week there can be twenty or more activities on offer including – Art Clubs, Games Clubs, Creative Writing and Reading Clubs, Science and STEM Clubs, a Debating Club, Duke of Edinburgh Award scheme and many sporting and expressive arts activities.
There is also a mind-broadening variety of out-of school trips and visits to art galleries, museums, theatres, field trip locations and diverse places of worship. Students also venture further afield, for example to practise their foreign languages in Paris, Berlin or on a trip down the Rhine, or to experience first-hand the legacy of the Belgian Battlefields. Some even join Team Uganda and visit our partner Secondary School in Mityana.
The school enjoys a whole host of Performing Arts activities and events including a biennial music tour abroad, whole school musical productions, Theatre trips, Arts Evening, TestFest, involvement in Competitions and Festivals as well as a huge range of music ensembles to join and Dance and Drama groups.
The school offers an excellent range of sporting activities and we have excellent facilities on site including an all-weather 3G pitch and a fitness gym. Activities can include basketball, aerobics, badminton, cross country, netball, volleyball, gym, Pilates, girls’ and boys’ football and rugby, with athletics, cricket, rounders, swimming and tennis in the summer months. There is sport for fun and fitness as well as a range of competitive sports' teams who regularly bring home trophies from area and regional competitions.
For students attending extra curricular activities there is no need to sign up or speak to a teacher before the activity. Students who are attending PE extra-curricular activities will need to attend school in their PE kit and bring appropriate footwear for the activity. This is because there will not be enough changing facilities to house individual year group bubbles.
Finally, please be aware that there are no school buses running after the clubs have finished so alternative methods of collection would be required (parent/guardian pick up/public bus etc.).
