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 (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.
We are delighted to announce that some of our after school Performing Arts and Music clubs will be restarting this half term.
To begin with, we have teamed up with LIPA to offer the following one off performing arts sessions. These are open to all year 9 & 10 students. No experience necessary, just lots of enthusiasm!
Wednesday 5th May – Dance with Donna
Wednesday 12th May - Acting with Duncan
Wednesday 19th May - Making Performance Possible with Laura
All of the above LIPA sessions will take place between 2:45-3:45pm. Students may bring their skort or leggings to change into for the classes. Please ensure you have arranged suitable transport home for your daughter after the session.
Additionally we are relaunching ourSenior Choir, which will be ran by Stephen Mannings from the Liverpool Anglican Cathedral. This is an extremely exciting venture which is bound to create lots of additional opportunities for everyone involved. Again, this is open to all students in years 9 – 13.
"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."
