After school clubs
Extra-curricular clubs are offered before and after school for all Years 7 to 13. Our wide range of sport and activity clubs rotate on a termly basis to ensure there is something which appeals to everyone and to develop varying skills and interests. Activities can include band, orchestra and choir practice; science; maths and coding; Spanish film and culture; art; creative writing; yoga; fencing; judo; netball; and the Sports Leaders award, to name but a few.
Our timetabled enrichment programme sees students debate, fundraise, and explore activities beyond the conventional curriculum, providing opportunities and experiences that inspire and develop the individual, as well as enhance university and job applications. Creative opportunities include comic writing and drama rehearsals (for school productions), while our ‘Plants, People and the Planet’ group put climate action at the heart of school life.
The Duke of Edinburgh's Award
Other activities are designed to develop essential skills for life and work, such as DofE. Our students embark on their Bronze, Silver and Gold DofE Awards, completing the four Volunteering, Physical, Skills and Expedition sections of the programme. DofE is an invaluable opportunity to help others, improve health and fitness, develop new and existing skills, and embark on an adventure, and NBH students thrive on the sense of challenge and achievement.
World of work
Our ‘World of Work’ lecture programme features speakers from varying industries and workplaces and is designed to inspire and educate students, allowing them to make informed choices about their professional development and academic pathway.
