Extra-curricular activities

At Bryanston we recognise the importance of offering young people the chance to explore new activities and interests, to enable them to have a balanced education and live life to the full. We offer more than 100 different extra-curricular activities (ECAs) to inspire and engage every child outside the classroom.

ECAs include sports, arts, music, and science and academic clubs and societies, meaning, whatever their interests, pupils should be able to find an ECA that suits them. If not, they are encouraged to suggest new ECAs and many of the older pupils help to set up and run these.

Activities that are regularly taken up include:

All pupils in D (year 9) and C (year 10) are involved in at least one ECA a week and most choose to do more, depending on their other commitments.
The majority of pupils in B (year 11), A3 (year 12) and A2 (year 13) are also involved in ECAs, further developing their interests from participation in the junior years.
