Extra Curricular Activities

At Archbishop Blanch we are delighted to offer such a wide variety of extra-curricular opportunities to all of our students including a range of Sports, Choir and Performing Arts, and much more which take place after school usually from 2:30 – 3:30 or 3.45pm.

There is an abundance of research to support the claim that ‘extra-curricular activities provide several benefits for children’ (Eanes, 2016) such as the development of key transferable skills, as well as the opportunity to socialise with peers.

A Caring Christian Environment

"Our two daughters have had the best start in life thanks to the caring, enthusiastic and hardworking staff of Archbishop Blanch School. Choosing the right secondary school for one's children is such a difficult task, but we could feel the special ethos of ABS on our first visit. You inspire your pupils to achieve the academic heights of which they are capable in a happy, safe and vibrant environment."
Archbishop Blanch Parent.
