Extra-Curricular Activities

Whitmore students perform to the highest standards in the arts and sport - achievements which are complemented by the broad range of interpersonal and social skills which they develop. Extra-curricular activities are a vital part of what makes our students become confident, caring young adults.


There are many opportunities for taking part in visits both at home and abroad. The Languages Department arranges annual study visits to France and Germany. Activity trips are organised in many other departments, including adventure training in Devon, the History trip to the war graves at Ypres and excursions for the Duke of Edinburgh’s Award.

Music students participate in workshops, technology students compete in engineering challenges and a wide range of musical and theatre groups visit Whitmore to perform for our students.

Mathematics, Science, English and Languages students and our Debating Team take part in local and national competitions. Students also organise enterprise events which cover a range of activities – everything from talent shows to Dragon’s Den!


A wide range of fantastic clubs and activities takes place before and after school, and at lunchtimes. These include sport, art, music, drama, film, enterprise, debating, language and faith groups. The programme of clubs is published in our monthly newsletter.

Whitmore also runs a range of coursework support and revision classes for students preparing for exams.

Our breakfast club offers a range of healthy breakfast foods, together with activities such as table tennis and board games.
