Clubs & Extra Curricular

At Wellington School, the importance of extracurricular activities is never underestimated, especially by the dedicated staff members who provide an array of opportunities to pupils in the Junior and Senior Schools. From choral singing to philosophising, skateboarding to war gaming – there is something stimulating for everyone.

Enjoyment is the principal motivator in joining a club, however, it is widely acknowledged that extracurricular activities offer a wide range of other benefits. Some of these benefits include:

  • Promoting well-being
  • Nurturing strategic, lateral and independent thinking
  • Developing new (transferable) skills and consolidating others
  • Giving a broad education
  • Fostering a sense of ownership and citizenship
