Our Co-Curricular Programme
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. It is therefore not surprising that we prize our co-curriculum programme as much as our academic endeavours. We are committed to helping young people discover new talents, master skills and enhance their physical, mental and spiritual well-being. Our programme is also integral to our commitment to develop character and resilience. We want to nuture control, commitment, challenge and confidence in our students. We are proud to offer over 90 club sessions each week. After all, we never know what opportunity will unleash skills and talents of the next MasterChef, Team GB sports teams, Emmy Award winners, inventors or United Nations representatives.
Our programme is advertised here on the website, form notices and screens around the school. Please do encourage your child to make the most of this opportunity. We are extremely proud of what we offer thanks to our dedicated staff and volunteers. If there are any clubs not currently on offer that your child would enjoy, please encourage them to come and speak to their class Student Council representative or to Mrs Gale, our Enrichment Co-ordinator. Equally if there are any parents keen to volunteer to offer a club, please do not hesitate to contact us on firstname.lastname@example.org.
Here is a flavour of what your child may experience:
Our dedicated, passionate and creative staff know that curiosity may be ignited in the Watchmakers Club tinkering with delicate mechanics; a talent may be discovered on Knole Park 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 who strive for more trophies. Voices develop in harmony in our various choirs and energy is unleashed at Dodgeball. Musicality is released in Jazz Band and Orchestra while faith is shared at Christian Union.
Our community is served through voluntary work by the Bronze and Silver Duke of Edinburgh Award teams between adventuring across the South Downs and further afield. Our Book Club gravels over the Hunger Games while ping pong balls are skilfully sliced over the table tennis nets at lunchtimes. David Attenborough fans enjoy the latest wildlife documentary in the Natural History Club while Sock Monkeys are created next door.
We learn to be emotionally intelligent and communicate clearly on the Sevenoaks Youth Council, while pirouettes are mastered to the beat of the music at Dance Club. Strategies are practised at Tennis Club while creations come together at the Moving Image-Making Club. We develop the gift of the gab at Public Speaking while coming to grips with difficult questions about Christianity at Apologetics. The prestigious Arts Award is achieved through dedication and persistence in Art and Drama.
There is Maths Clinic for those striving to do even better and Debating Club for learning to speak with conviction. Those striving for the EPQ can receive dedicated mentoring. Then there is time to unwind during Drawing and Mindfulness Colouring or exploring European and Asian language 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 generation has 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.
