We encourage our pupils to give things a go and try something new. With over 60 co-curricular activities on offer, there’s something for everyone to get stuck into.

No one is good at everything, but everyone can excel at something. We see, first-hand, the joy and sense of accomplishment taking part in co-curricular activities brings. Whether it’s light relief from the academic focus needed in the GCSE years, making friends for life or exploring new ways to satisfy creativity or curiosity – these activities have a habit of bringing it all out.


Co-curricular life

At Claremont Fan Court School, we believe that a well-rounded education goes beyond the classroom. Our Co-curricular Life booklet showcases a wide array of activities. We foster an atmosphere in which pupils can always “have a go” at trying out something new. It is a delight to watch our pupils’ passion for their clubs grow as they do. From Pre-Nursery age, all the way through to sixth form, we help pupils find clubs where they can unlock their potential. Whether it be a new sport, an activity, or a skill, our diverse programme enables pupils to discover their passions, explore new ideas, and achieve their goals.


Activities on offer

Over 60 activities make up our total offering. Some are term-specific and others run throughout the year, and we very much try to fit as many as we can into the school day to ensure our school bus users don’t miss out.

Some of our most popular activities in recent years include Lego building, crime scene investigation (forensic science), gymnastics and DJ club.

2024/2025 Sports Guide

Duke of Edinburgh Award

We introduce DofE to all pupils in Year 9. Throughout the year they complete a range of expeditions as a team and take part in community volunteering projects in order to qualify for the bronze award. After that, it’s their choice to work towards silver and gold, and a huge number of our pupils do.

The expeditions allow pupils to demonstrate a range of practical and survival skills, including first aid, with the majority taking place on weekends at locations in England and Wales, with the opportunity to travel abroad at gold level. It may be hard work but is always worth it, with a huge sense of achievement at the end!

Summer Celebrations

Summer Celebrations is an exciting period towards the end of the summer term which encompasses an uplifting collection of team-building trips, tuneful concerts, show-stopping productions and artistic exhibitions. Dive into our brochure to discover how the whole school celebrated all things enrichment in 2023.

Enterprise club

Teams of pupils from Year 10 and Year 12 are given the opportunity to set up and run their own business. They create business plans, pitch to a team of “dragons” and make their own products which they sell at various events throughout the year. They also take part in the Peter Jones Tycoon challenge which is a nationally run competition for budding entrepreneurs. Previous businesses have included reusable sandwich wraps, bags for dog walkers and sustainable light shades. The programme helps pupils to develop skills such as teamwork and problem solving.
