Extra-curricular Activities

Get Involved - The more you do, the more you achieve

Many of our pupils have taken part in the Duke of Edinburgh Award Scheme, others have chosen to join the school concert band, drama club or one of our modern foreign language or music groups. Sport is a real strength at Broughton and pupils participate in a wide range of activities. We enter as many local and regional competitions as possible, enabling our pupils to improve and succeed in equal measure.

We believe that school is more than just lessons and we encourage everybody to get involved and make the most of all the varied opportunities available here at Broughton.

With over sixty extra-curricular activities to choose from, the opportunities for having lots of fun and making new friends are exhaustive, both inside and outside the classroom. Whether you are a budding actor, singer, musician, sportsperson or dynamic entrepreneur, we want you to enjoy your time with us and get involved as much as possible.
