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 2:35 – 3:35 (Unless stated)

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.

Our extra-curricular activities starting from January 2022 can be found below:

Quick Guide to clubs:

Books and Bakes – Reading and literacy book club, students are currently reading The Book Thief. Students are supported in sharing their ideas, views and opinions about the novel while enjoying some biscuits or cakes.

Creative Writing Club – Students will enter competitions and be inspired to write creatively through looking at different authors and fuelling their imagination.

Pride Club is a space for students and staff to promote positive LGBTQ+ awareness and inclusion at ABS. We hope to create educational installations around ABS to increase knowledge and understanding of various LGBTQ+ identities and issues.

Womens Society – Women’s Society is an opportunity to discuss issues around gender inequality in society and a way to address gender misconceptions. We look at a broad range of global, local and individual strategies to ending sexism. We work to empower students and aim to change the perception of women in today’s society.

Embrace Club -We aim to gather together as a school community to celebrate and embrace our differences. To raise awareness for all disabilities, both visible and not visible.
