Enriching young lives by stretching body and mind – that’s how we see the outstanding range of extra-curricular programme of clubs, activities and trips at Quinton House School. Across the Nursery, Junior and Senior schools we offer well over 100 different activities each week: before and after school and at lunchtimes. The vast majority of these are free of charge as we consider this aspect of school life extremely important to the holistic education we provide.
We encourage every pupil to find their passion, pursue and succeed in it. The range of activities and clubs on offer range from a wide selection of sports, including all the traditional team sports such as rugby, football, hockey and netball as well as the more individual sports such as trampolining and wall-climbing. If performing arts are your thing, then you may wish to act in the school production. Music is also well represented in this category with a number of choirs, bands and orchestras. The creative arts are also exceptionally popular and range from portrait painting to photography.
Duke of Edinburgh’s Award
Quinton House School actively runs the Duke of Edinburgh (D of E) Award throughout the year for pupils aged 14-18. The award is a voluntary, non-competitive programme of activities in and outside of school.
The D of E programme gives young people the opportunity to experience new activities and develop new skills. There are three progressive levels; Bronze, Silver and Gold. Each level comprises 4 sections (volunteering, physical, skills and expedition) with an additional residential activity for the Gold award. For more information visit the Duke of Edinburgh’s Award website here.
Pupils can sign up to D of E at the beginning of every term. Expeditions take place between March and August each year.
Quinton House D of E is run and managed by Mr Muskin, Director of Sport, an on-site trained Co-ordinator and Leader.
