Developing our talents together
Co-curricular clubs and activities occur throughout the academic year. These foster pupil knowledge, develop skills in the arts, while also acting as preparation for events.
In both the junior and the senior schools, we have co-curricular after-school activities. Following the end of lessons pupils have the opportunity to engage in sports clubs (basketball, netball, football, badminton, etc.) as well as drama and music/acapella.
Sports clubs including Football, netball, basketball, Badminton and games take place throughout the week. These clubs give pupils the opportunity to hone their skills to represent St Gerard’s school Trust in fixtures and competitions throughout the year.
Weekly afterschool sessions take place to encourage pupils to have fun while developing good core strength and wellbeing.
Both individually and in groups, students engage with music at all levels at St Gerard's. Some pupils undertake tutoring for individual instruments while others are involved with our school choir and our ensembles. Ensembles practice during after school sessions. One of the main events of the school calendar, our Cathedral Service, is supported by our talented young musicians.
