Extra-Curricular

King James´s School is passionate about providing as many opportunities as possible for our students. Sixth Form students take part in cultural visits and research work across all curriculum disciplines, as well as sporting activities and competitive events.

There is a range of visits throughout the school year and during holidays. Residentials include skiing in the Alps, and art and photography visits to a variety of locations. Other trips include theatre and cinema visits, and the opportunity to watch sporting events. The annual Leavers´ Ball is a tremendous end to students´ Sixth Form career.

There are opportunities to coach teams and attend fitness sessions in school. Two gymnasia, a sports hall, fitness room, 3G pitch, floodlit tennis courts, outside courts and fields provide outstanding sports facilities.

Musicians are well catered for with a wide range of vocal and instrumental groups as well as extensive music technology provision. Opportunities are also arranged to visit events out of school, as observers as well as participants. Performances and tours are organised on a regular basis. Artists have an outstanding variety of opportunities within the Sixth Form. Local drawing trips, visits to London galleries and trips abroad all feed into high-quality work that is celebrated at our spring and summer art exhibitions.

Actors perform to a very high standard in a variety of performances, including school productions such as Blood Brothers and Chicago, house drama competitions and the expressive arts evening. Theatre visits are organised throughout the year for students to enjoy.

Scientists benefit from field trips, including a trip to the large hadron collider in Cern, and revision days using external expertise. Our history and social science students have the opportunity to visit museums and other sites of historical interest., and of course we can’t forget our geography fieldtrips.
