Home » School » Activities


We run over 20 different activities each week – from sports clubs to academic and self-development activities, all of which look great on a university application. Every student has different goals and we work with each individual to help them find activities they enjoy. We can also help students access additional clubs in the local area or offer support to start their own club or society at the school.

As Cambridge is a university town, there is always a lot to do – particularly popular with our students are the Cambridge Science Festival and the Cambridge Festival of Ideas which are run annually by the University of Cambridge.
