Developing our talents together
Clubs and activities occur throughout the academic year. These foster pupil knowledge, develop skills in the arts, while also acting as preparation for events.
In both the junior and the senior schools we have after-school activities. Following the end of lessons pupils have the opportunity to engage in sports clubs (basketball, hockey, netball, rowing, etc.) as well as art, science and film clubs.
Both individually and in groups, students engage with music at all levels at St Gerard's. Some pupils undertake tutoring for individual instruments while others are involved with our school choir and our ensembles. Ensembles practice during lunchtime sessions. One of the main events of the school calendar, our Cathedral Service, is supported by our talented young musicians.
The WorldWise Quiz is run in conjunction with the UK Geographic Association. Mrs. Hawley, our geography teacher, works annually to prepare students for the quiz.
Nomads - Creative writing
Weekly sessions are held by the English department to encourage creative writing, known as Nomads. This group has a well-established tradition at St Gerard's and promotes individual creativity, language development and writing skills.
Duke of Edinburgh
The school is an accredited provider of the Duke of Edinburgh program and has pupils enrolled on the bronze, silver and gold awards. Please have a look on our DoE pages.
