At St Clement Danes, we provide an unrivalled programme of extra-curricular activities. Year 7 enjoy a stimulating week at an outward bound centre in Bude; Year 8 and 12 students participate in work-shadowing events; all students are able to join a host of subject-focused clubs and our Charities Prefects lead Charities Week which is at the heart of our fund-raising efforts.
Musicians enjoy an almost endless range of ensembles including two orchestras, two choirs and a jazz band, which provide opportunities for beginners through to National Youth Orchestra members. As well as the prestigious Commemoration Service, we put on concerts throughout the year, not to mention regular tours to Europe.
Keen sportsmen and women enjoy the extensive playing fields, all weather flood-lit pitch, hard courts, gymnasium and sports hall which are used by all students during their time at the school. Teams regularly compete at a high level, with many achieving success in regional and national competitions. Each year, students attend an athletics training camp in Lanzarote and a football tour to the USA as well as popular Duke of Edinburgh and World Challenge expeditions which help students discover talents they never thought they had.
At the entrance to the school, we are proud to display photographs that celebrate members of the school community who have achieved national honours. While delivering a high quality experience for all, we also believe in providing opportunities for our most gifted and talented students in all areas of achievement.
