We believe strongly in the importance of extra-curricular activities: they are enjoyable, enriching and fulfilling in their own right; they teach such important attributes as teamwork and time management; they allow young people to make friends, to discover skills they never knew they possessed and to gain a sense of achievement. They are outlets for energy and creativity and a young person who is happy and fulfilled outside the classroom is much more likely to perform well within it.
