Extra-Curricular

We believe in developing the whole child.

We are focused on delivering more than just an academic education by developing the character of our pupils and enhancing their wellbeing.

Our extra-curricular offering is key to our character education programme, to the health and happiness of our students and to growing them into rounded young adults. With creative enrichment embedded into the school timetable, plus a whole host of after school clubs, trips, musical and theatrical opportunities, we nurture our pupils’ interests and open their eyes to the wider world.

Take a look at our most popular clubs.

These are just a few of the much-loved extra-curricular activities offered in our schools.

Environmental council

From our Nursery and Pre-Prep ‘Eco-Warriors’ to our Plants, People and the Planet group at NBH Senior Canonbury, our various environmental and sustainability councils are well represented across our family of schools. Students harness their love for the environment and nature, proposing and driving initiatives to make our school as environmentally friendly as it can be.

Music Tuition

Music is a large part of the vibrant life at North Bridge House and is celebrated both within and beyond the curriculum. Across all schools we host a colourful variety of concerts and performances, which present great a opportunity for our various choirs; orchestras; school bands; strings, woodwind and percussion ensembles to perform. Popular after school clubs include Ukulele Club for our Pre-Prep instrumentalists and Rock School for our Senior superstars.

Sport for All

Specialist teachers deliver sport for all children aged 4 and above as we believe PE and Games are key to promoting character development and wellbeing through the curriculum. Our extra-curricular programme also provides a wealth of opportunity for pupils to embrace their competitive spirit.

CLUBS AVAILABLE

From the outset of every child’s education, we support them in becoming the leaders of tomorrow.

Our wide variety of extra-curricular clubs and activities is designed to spark curiosity beyond the formal curriculum and foster a breadth of character which will equip our young people for future success.

We offer the Early Years children everything from yoga and ballet to gardening and Italian, while our Prep School students enjoy access to an after school provision that includes over 30 clubs.

By the time our pupils reach the Senior School, we offer breaktime and after school clubs, plus a timetabled enrichment programme which covers around 20 different topics aimed specifically at character education.

Our enrichment activities include:

BEFORE & AFTER SCHOOL CARE

Delivering trusted wraparound care.

We provide parents with wraparound care from 7.45am until 5.45pm daily. Breakfast Club and Tea Club top and tail the school day and are widely used by our Nursery & Pre-Prep families. And when term is out, our hugely popular NBH Holiday Club is run by our dedicated teaching staff.

TRIPS

We bring learning to life.

Learning outside the classroom is key to developing our pupils, both academically and personally. We want them to be ready to tackle the highly competitive international job market, so we expand their horizons with a broad range of day and residential trips.

As our schools are in the north of London, we benefit from being surrounded by a whole host of internationally renowned museums, theatres, galleries and places of interest. Regular visits to these attractions, as well as to our partner Cuffley Active Learning Centre, provide enriching opportunities for our pupils to use London and the outdoors as their classroom.

Timetabled trips to Cuffley’s Forest School are key to developing our Nursery and Pre-Prep pupils' problem-solving and communication skills, connecting the mind with nature and the wider world in the formative years of education. Meanwhile our Prep and Senior School students visit Cuffley for various bushcraft and outdoor learning experiences, designed to build resilience, confidence and teamwork in our future generation.

Residential trips develop our pupils’ cultural awareness and global perspective, providing opportunity for everything, from sporting adventures to GCSE History studies, not forgetting community outreach projects.

Examples of residential school trips include:
  • Belgium

  • Germany

  • Italy

  • New York

  • Malawi

  • Borneo
