Extra-curricular and after school activities are a vital part of a student’s experience at Woodrush. Each year a large range of clubs, activities and events take place both during and after school hours outside of the core curriculum which allow students to pursue their interests in a variety of areas. We encourage all students to become involved in at least one extra-curricular activity, as we know that these activities play a crucial role in developing essential character traits such as teamwork, self-discipline, commitment, skill development, self-esteem and confidence as well as being great fun! Some of the extracurricular activities available last year included: sports teams, creative arts productions with dance, music and drama (including a project with the National Theatre), the Duke of Edinburgh’s Award, Lego Robotics, Book club, Science club, Animal club, Coding club, Geography club and the Historical Society.
We believe that trips and visits are an important part of our students’ education and that students should have a range of opportunities to take part in trips throughout their time at school. Educational visits allow students to experience first-hand the knowledge and skills gained within lessons, helping to enhance their understanding.
A range of residential and non-residential trips are organised, with opportunities to visit destinations locally national and internationally. Here are just a few of the many trips which took place during the last academic year; an outdoor adventure trip to Blackwell Court, an art and photography trip to Kew Gardens, a History trip to Berlin, a visit to Worcester Cathedral, revision conferences, theatre visits, university masterclasses and Geography fieldwork. We also run ski trips to Italy and a sixth form trip to New York.
