Extra-curricular activities are vitally important at King James’s School and students have the opportunity to take part in a wide range of trips, creative and sporting activities.
Learning is enhanced by fieldwork trips, visits to museums, art galleries, the theatre and sporting venues, the Duke of Edinburgh Award, annual ski and watersports trips to Europe, and exchange visits abroad.
Our sports facilities are excellent and students can choose from a wide range of sport and fitness-related activities, both recreational and competitive. Our highly successful school teams regularly compete against other schools.
Expressive Arts are a particular strength of the school. Music and Drama productions are performed annually and the Art department showcases students’ work through a number of exhibitions each year.
The school also encourages participation for all through our active house system. Events run in most subject areas, the most spectacular being House Drama, which is organised by the senior students.
