Extra Curricular, Trips & Activities
We offer our students a varied and lively programme of activities, with something to suit all interests.
BEFORE SCHOOL Students can arrive at school from 7.30am and have access to computers, books and newspapers in the library. On one morning a week Arsenal football training is available from 7.30am.
AT LUNCHTIMES We offer a range of leisure and study activities every lunchtime ranging from ICT, chess and film clubs to sports, knitting and quiet study sessions. Many of these are supervised by our trained team of sixth formers.
AFTER SCHOOL From 3.15pm a wide variety of clubs and activities are available. Students can do homework in the library with support from sixth formers until 4.30pm. The Inclusion team provides more personalised homework support after school on two days each week. Sports activities including dance, box fit, basketball, football, cricket, karate, trampolining and skateboarding are offered during the week alongside specific subject clubs such as maths, ICT, science, STEM, business, food technology, media, design and technology and art. A Glee club runs on Saturday afternoons. In the run up to coursework deadlines and exams, all subject areas offer a programme of support and revision sessions after school.
HALF TERMS AND HOLIDAYS We provide sports programmes in most holidays as well as hosting other holiday activities in collaboration with the Roundhouse, Pro Touch football, The Challenge and Camden Summer University. Summer schools in July and August for the new Year 7 students are sometimes also able to accommodate students from other years. Holiday revision programmes are available in the holidays before exam periods.
LINKS WITH THE ROUNDHOUSE We encourage students to participate in the music, drama, and media courses offered by the Roundhouse after school, at weekends and during the holidays. Free music and circus skills clubs run at the Roundhouse each week for Haverstock students and are a great way for students to develop their skills and gain confidence in a new environment.
The extra-curricular programme is available at the start of each term via Haverstock News, by clicking on this link or as a booklet from the school office.
