General Information

As a school, we strongly believe in the importance of extra-curricular activities and we offer a range of activities outwith normal classroom work which help to widen the experience of all pupils. Extra-curricular activities can relieve some of the pressures of academic work and assist pupils to develop their talents and use leisure time effectively. These activities may occur at lunchtime or at the end of the normal school day. There are also opportunities to take part in visits and excursions both at home and abroad.

Activities which have recently been available to pupils include:- school football

Badminton, Hospitality, Bands, Basketball, Card-Making, Choirs, Creative Writing, Curling, Debating, Drama, Fairtrade Group, Football, Five-a-side Football, Gaming Club, Golf, Guitar Group, Hockey, Junior Enterprise, Library, Netball, Public Speaking, School Shows, S5/S6 Social Committee, S6 Yearbook Group, String Ensemble, Volleyball, Gymnastics, Fitness, and Drawing & Sketching.

There is also a well-developed voluntary house system which encourages healthy competition between the houses, and which helps to foster good relationships between pupils and staff as do all the extra curricular activities including discos, the senior prom, and other events which occur in the school calendar.

Pupils at Broomlee Camp in S1

One extremely popular activity for S1 pupils is the residential school camp which is held at Broomlee Camp, West Linton, for four days in mid-May. Pupils have to pay their own costs but these are kept to a minimum and a camp bank operates from October each year. The school camp offers unique advantages for practising outdoor education in the widest sense and includes a comprehensive programme of exploring the countryside, together with physical and social activities.

Many pupils participate in the Duke of Edinburgh Award Scheme, John Muir Award and Youth Achievements Awards.
