Clubs and Enrichment

At St Catherine’s College we are very proud to promote an extensive range of high quality enrichment activities offered to our pupils. Over this year, our aim is to build upon and develop existing and new opportunities, making sure more and more pupils can take part.

As an active member of Sainsbury’s School Games, and having achieved the school games' Silver kitemark for high levels of commitment to the development of competition across the school, we have an extensive range of sporting activities and clubs.

In September 2016, St Catherine’s College launched the Duke of Edinburgh's Award Scheme, which is designed to encourage independence and resilience in our young people outside the classroom. Along with this, we have also run World Challenge and, for six years, Bushcraft. 

Within the Arts, St Catherine’s College is committed to celebrating the creative talents our pupils shown through Dance, Drama and Music productions throughout the year. Every year our budding artists exhibit work in the Towner Gallery and take part in a host of art related competitions and workshops. The Music Department puts on stunning Christmas and summer concerts, while the Dance and Drama Departments showcase their talents through spectacular productions. We were very excited to have Tabitha Webb (West End musical star) join us for various events. 

Our clubs are wide-ranging and cover all aspects of academic and non-academic subjects, from Science and Literacy clubs to Sports and Arts, the Christian Union and Debating Society.

We offer trips far and wide to places including: Uganda, Gambia, China, USA, Nepal, with regular trips to Belgium, Berlin, France and Italy. Closer to home, we had a trip to Glyndebourne Opera House, to watch Don Giovanni.
