A variety of activities and opportunities

A school is, of course, much more than its academic programme and results. Thus, at St Gerard's, there are opportunities to take part in various school activities which not only complement academic development but also enable other interests and talents to flourish.

Regular extra-curricular activities take place in sports, English, drama, geography and music.

Pupils have access to:

The junior school organises stimulating and worthwhile trips in each year group.  Whilst we aim to fit the trips into the curriculum area being taught at the time, it is not always possible.
Recent junior school trips include visits to Oriel Ynys Mon (Llangefni), The National Slate Museum (Llanberis) as well as our local library and post office.

The junior and senior schools also invite speakers into school to talk with the pupils about important issues.  At the junior school this includes the local police force and subject specialists for the STEAM activities.  At the senior school this can include experts in preparation for Duke of Edinburgh expeditions, local artists to work with students and speakers associated with our school charity.

The senior school also aims to provide opportunities for pupils to travel abroad. 
Recent trips include:

Art & French in Paris, France (2017)
Ski Trip, Tignes, France (2018)
