Introduction to our Co-Curricular programme

At Trinity School, we understand that the learning students do outside the classroom is just as important as the learning they do inside. We offer regular trips and visits that generate real enthusiasm and motivation for learning.

Education is not the filling of a pail, but the lighting of a fire.

William Butler Yeats

At Trinity School we focus on life in all its fullness. The physical, spiritual, emotional and intellectual well-being of our young people are equally important. Similarly, the co-curricular programme is as important as the academic curriculum. For this reason we offer over 80 club sessions each week; a provision rarely seen in state schools. With almost 80% of all our pupils participating in a range of sport, performing arts, cultural or other activities, we tailor our provision according to our Student Voice.

Our dedicated, passionate and creative staff know that curiosity may be ignited in a Geology Club; a talent may be discovered on the golf course; a sense of healthy competition may be contested on the rugby field or a culinary delight created in our Cookery Club. Ingenious Lego robots are keenly programmed and complex problems solved at our Lego League Club. Voices develop in harmony in our various choirs and energy is unleashed at Dodgeball.  Musicality is released in Jazz Band and faith is shared at Christian Union. Our community is served through voluntary work by the Bronze Duke of Edinburgh Award team. Our Book Club gravels over the Hunger Games while ping pong balls are skilfully sliced over the table tennis nets at lunchtimes. Our Beauty and the Beast cast grow with their characters while adventures are planned across the South Downs by the Silver Duke of Edinburgh Award team. We learn to be emotionally intelligent and communicate clearly on the Sevenoaks Youth Council, while music pulses through our dancers. Flick-flacks are mastered at Gymnastics Club and strategies practised at Tennis Club. Fitness and team-building is developed at the Football and Netball sessions. Our Sixth Formers explore the Art of Brewing while the Maths Challenge groups solve the latest challenges.

This year we are particularly excited about offering Ultimate Frisbee for the first time. In addition, the thought-provoking lecture series Steane’s Symposiums are going to be a real treat of philosophy, science and culture.

We actively encourage our pupils to develop our School’s key skills of truth, excellence, leadership, love and service so it is not surprising that a number of clubs are led by our pupils, allowing their leadership skills to thrive.

The spark for today’s Masterchefs, Team GB sports teams, Emmy Award winners, inventors or the United Nations representatives had to start somewhere.  That is why we are committed to giving our young people opportunities to shine in the fullness of their education here at Trinity School. Our activities develop talent as much as character.  Do contact Mrs Gale: dgale@trinitysevenoaks.com or Dr Barford: kbarford@trinitysevenoaks.com if you would like to know more about our programme or if you are able to volunteer some time to develop a skill in our programme.
