In this area of our website you will find details of just some of the many extra-curricular clubs and activities 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.
Some clubs are subject to change in the new school year. Details of clubs will be collected from teachers during term 1 in September.
Friday lunchtime in S7.
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 6 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.
The BNC Club is for KS3 students after school on a Wednesday. Students wishing to attend should speak to Mr Bowler.
