At Park School we want children to have a well-rounded education that includes extra-curricular subjects with opportunities to perform music and drama as well as sports and wider cultural activities.
Ofsted’s new handbook stipulates that, among many other things, schools will now be judged on how well they give pupils, “the knowledge and cultural capital they need to succeed in life”. Academic achievement is no longer enough to secure the best jobs and life chances. We want to ensure that every Park School girl leaves with the skills, vocabulary and knowledge to help them confidently and effectively progress and shine in a world where soft-skills are more valued than ever.
This term, Park School has re-launched its extra-curricular programme and added a wide range of new clubs under the umbrella term of “enrichment”. A comprehensive list of clubs follows and includes something for everyone. Hearts, Minds and Souls is our motto and this term, amongst many other choices, we are offering Running Club for the heart, Classics Club for the mind and Yoga for our souls.
Watch this space for Club of the Week which will add colour and some personal reflections on the girls’ experiences.
