In this area of our website you will find details of just some of the many extra-curricular clubs and activities outside of lessons we offer here at Highdown.
Clubs do change according to the season; for example our sports clubs depend on the time of year. Days, times and rooms are also subject to change, therefore always check with the teaching staff involved to make sure you have all the information you need before attending.
Pride and Prejudice
Pride and Prejudice is an LGBT+ club for all. It is a club that celebrates differences rather than allowing them to divide us. Anyone is welcome, including allies, and if you have friends that may feel uncomfortable attending alone then offer to come along with them.
D&T Bake Off club is not currently running. Please check here for updates.

The Art department is running an Art club each week. The club will run until June half term and is open to all students. The Art club has a great community feel. We work on interesting projects and use a wide range of materials.
The club is on Wednesdays from 3.05 – 4.05 pm in A3.

The BNC is an Economist Educational Foundation run digital news club which focuses on KS2 and KS3 engagement with wider world issues.
Each month students are given six weeks worth of material on a new exciting topic. Students will then create articles and reports on the topic, which will be uploaded onto the BNC website. Other schools can then comment and encourage discussion. We are also encouraged to do the same to other schools presented work. At the end of the term, a summary task is given and we have the opportunity to produce a school newspaper, reporting on the topic and the work completed.
Hair & Beauty Club
Mondays in DT5 for years 7 and 8. Only 11 students per session. Speak to Mrs Pierro if you're interested.
