Some of the most memorable moments involve school trips, activities and events: that first time walking on stage in a big production, the intake of breath entering the Houses of Parliament, that sense of accomplishment crossing the finish line of the Ten Tors Challenge.
We’re just as busy outside school and there’s something for every student with our many clubs, societies and productions.
We’ve sung at London’s Royal Albert Hall, and the Sherborne Abbey Music Festival; explored the history, culture and people of China, India, Italy, Japan and Rwanda,; immersed ourselves in the languages of Germany, Spain and France; skied down the slopes of Austria, run our very own arts festival and won the southern final of Rock Challenge – the international dance and drama competition.
There is a wide range of Extra Curricular activities available for students of all years.

As well as some of the region’s top employers, we also have a number of other organisations attending on Wednesday. The Samee Project is a unique and inspirational social enterprise that aims to promote self-employment and freelance working as viable career options to young people in school education.
Chris Wilkinson will be on the stand to talk to students and parents – he was awarded an MBE for his services to the Police. He is also an Animal behaviourist and dog trainer and a Patron of the SAMEE Charity.
