Extra Curricular Activities

Enhancing the curriculum.

Our comprehensive approach to education extends far beyond the regular school day. We believe that nurturing confident, well-rounded individuals requires a diverse range of experiences. We offer an array of extra-curricular activities designed to develop not only academic skills, but also confidence, creativity and community spirit. From our timetabled enrichment programme and regular school trips, to a wide variety of after school sports clubs, LAMDA classes, and participation in the Duke of Edinburgh's Award scheme, our extra-curricular provision is designed to inspire and cultivate talents that extend beyond the traditional curriculum.

Our commitment to providing an excellent extra-curricular offering is rooted in our desire to deliver a fully rounded and character-building education. From sports and fitness, to science and foreign film clubs, our students have the opportunity to explore their passions and develop their skills. Charity events are popular and encourage student leadership, whilst our Pride Club and Student Wellbeing Ambassadors further contribute to our wellbeing programme and close-knit, supportive school community.

Our clubs timetable varies throughout the year and each term brings new activities and seasonal sports, providing students with the opportunity to explore new interests, discover hidden talents, and broaden their skillset.

Clubs & activities loved by our students

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.

Enrichment programme

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.

Pupils have a good measure of success in extra-curricular activities, with some pupils' achievements being considerable for their ages, particularly in art and drama.
