Amazing Activities Fair

Pupils from First, Second and Third Year had a fantastic time exploring all of the clubs, activities and societies that are available at SGS during the Lower School Activities Fair.

The Hallam Hall was packed out with stalls, displays and sign-up sheets on the day of the Fair and the pupils were full of excitement as they eagerly explored and debated which clubs to join.

The school has an active and comprehensive co-curricular programme and the range of activities that SGS provides means that whether a pupil is sporty, musical, dramatic, thoughtful, competitive, curious, caring or creative, there is something to inspire.

Co-curricular activities, as well as Music and Sports practices, run every day at lunchtime and after school, so there is always something to get involved in and pupils are encouraged to try new activities as well as pursuing established interests.

The school’s co-curricular programme gives pupils the opportunity to take part in trips such as climbing in Spain, competitions including the National Cipher Challenge, the potential to perform on stage in venues such as the Royal Northern College of Music as well as the chance to participate in sports fixtures both locally and nationally.

Outdoor Education

Our comprehensive co-curricular provision was described as outstanding in the school’s ISI inspection and we believe it is the perfect way for all pupils to make friends and perhaps open the door to a life-long passion.

Pupil Oliver Walker is excited to join the Animal Club and keen mathematician Sami Butt is looking forward to Puzzles Club as he likes solving problems and brainteasers. Lily Noone can’t wait to get started with Girls Football and Dance Club along with her friends whilst Freya Ashworth-Brown will try Hockey and Netball for the first time.

All of the pupils agreed that the Fair made it easy for them to sign up for activities and that it was useful to have the staff and helpers in the same room to talk to.

Head of Lower School Mrs Helen Lawson said: “The Fair is really popular with the Lower School pupils and it is always lovely to see the boys and girls signing up to the clubs and activities. They are encouraged to be curious and to try something new, as well as participate in interests they already enjoy. With such a diverse range of clubs, there is definitely something for everyone, and the Fair seems to get busier each year.”
