Education Extra


Enrichment opportunities are a key part of life here at King John School, whether it be visitors to school, after school clubs, school events, local trips, or even residentials and visits abroad.

Our wide range of activities are designed to complement our formal curriculum plans, bringing learning to life in a visual, concrete, meaningful way for our pupils. By making these links explicit, these opportunities develop cultural capital, create a sense of joy and wonder, develop new skills, and foster a life-long love of learning. Pupils are actively encouraged to try new things and we listen to student voice about clubs and opportunities that they would like as part of their education extras experience.  


Highlights of our offer include:


Ski trip to Folgarida, Italy

Various school committees (e.g. Eco-Committee)

Visits to the Houses of Parliament in London

Guest speakers from various industries and universities



Our after school clubs are well attended, and covers a range of activities such as Dungeons & Dragons, sports and knitting. Our Extra-Curricular booklet can be found by clicking here. 

If your child might want to get involved with a club or event, but is not sure about it, they can also talk to their teacher to find out more in advance. Remember to let us know if you are currently eligible for Pupil Premium.
