“Your exam results only tell half the story.”
At King’s we attach great importance to pupils’ active involvement in activities outside the classroom as a means of broadening their horizons and presenting them with new challenges.
Our aim is to provide pupils with new and existing interests, to ask them to respond to new challenges and to stretch themselves in ways that will provide a contrast to their academic lives. The range of activities is wide: the cultural and creative, the adventurous and physically challenging, the giving of service to others. It is hoped that pupils will find something that appeals to them and that during the time they are at King’s they will experience a rich variety of activities.
Several of the clubs and societies at King’s are pupil-led, including History, Physics and Computer Programming, to name a few. The responsibility of leading a club gives pupils skills in leadership, time-management and organisation whilst encouraging them to pursue their interests beyond the classroom environment.
“Fill your life with experiences, not things. Have stories to tell, not stuff to show.”
